Santa's Forest Christmas Tree Farm only selling precut Christmas trees this year

They started selling Christmas trees in 1984.

"We heard there was a shortage of Christmas trees this year, so we made a decision to come out before the crowds picked them and we'd get first selection", Kugley said.

"It affects us a little bit because we are a very small farm".

"Kind of a family Christmas tradition the day after thanksgiving", says Andy Shrake, Christmas tree buyer.

Since the first trees were planted on a remote Maunakea hillside, there have been three more plantings of 600 seedlings each on state trust lands, said Heather Simmons, the executive director of the Hawaii Forest Industry Association.

"We supplement with some pre-cut Frazier Fur but we do plant 4000 to 5000 trees every year so we have new trees for our customers to choose from", says Owner Mary Jan Perdulla.

Christmas tree shortage expected to last through 2025
Higher demand for Christmas trees than available, recession takes toll

It's a classic example of supply and demand, National Christmas Tree Association spokesman Doug Hundley said. He said this isn't the first time there's been a shortage, but this year there are even fewer than previous years. And since people use artificial trees for five or more years, Hundley said, that figure is equivalent to 50 million fewer live trees being sold.

There aren't any good statistics on how many Christmas tree farmers have turned to cannabis.

According to Macklin, the average size trees they sell, cost about $100 previous year.

He recommends shoppers looking for trees at big box stores go before mid-December, because those stores buy from wholesalers.

"We've always had one", she said with a shrug. At the Capitol Market in Charleston fresh pine filled the air as tree sellers were stocked up. They bought a white, artificial one to match their mid-century home previous year.

A tight supply could affect the quality, selection and price.
