Christmas is right around the corner and finding a Christmas tree this year might be a little more difficult than in previous years due to the current global shipment crisis and a drought that took out a good chunk of natural trees.

I've been a fan of fake trees since I was a kid. Less mess, plus they tend to be a lot sturdier, and if you buy a high-quality one it'll last for years! But with 80% of fake trees coming from China, don't expect the shelves to be stocked this year.

The co-owner of Wahmhoff Farms in Gobles said there are real trees out there this year, it’s just a matter of where you’re going to find them.

 

"It varies throughout the locations in the country. Some places have had a drought, so they're short on trees. Out in the pacific northwest, they had a real hot dry summer and lost some trees," Dan Wahmhoff said. "There are still trees available, it's just a matter of what variety you're going to find, what size you’re going to find, and where you’re going to find it." Source:NBC25.com
