Christmas tree shortage hits this holiday season

Medford, Ore.- Local Christmas tree lots bringing in trees from Northern California say they will have fewer this year. That’s because during the recession, farmers planted fewer trees which means there are now fewer to harvest.

One Medford tree lot says they usually buy 1,400 trees but this year they bought just over 600.

However local tree farms say they aren’t seeing the same issue because they plant their own trees.

Regardless of where you go this weekend be is expected to be busy weather permitting.
