Now that Thanksgiving is over, it’s time to decorate for Christmas.

If you plan to pick out a real Christmas tree, you may be paying a little more for it this year.

There is a shortage in tree growth this year. Shell’s Christmas Tree Farm in Tuscumbia is down about fifty trees this year compared to last year. They ship in some of their trees from the Appalachian Mountains.

People with the farm say the price of trees this year is rising slightly because of the tight supply.

Floyd Coffman with Shell’s Christmas Tree Farm said, “There might be a little bit of a difference. We’ve had some customers say they’re spending about five to seven dollars more this year for their tree.”

Shell’s Farm is selling their trees in Providence in Huntsville and along Voyager Way behind Bridge Street. They expect to sell out before the week of Christmas.
