If a Christmas tree is an important symbol in your family’s holiday celebrations, it may sadden you, but shouldn’t surprise you that there’s news today of a shortage of Christmas Trees in 2,021.The same supply chain issues that are being blamed for skyrocketing costs for groceries and household products and the sticker shock you feel every time you fill up your vehicle with gasoline, are being blamed for a shortage of artificial Christmas trees. Most of them are produced in China, where it’s illegal to celebrate Christmas. We’re told live Christmas trees will be in short supply too, because of growing seasons that weren’t up to par for the growers who produce them around the country. So whether it’s a live or artificial Christmas tree that you’re looking for this year, you’d better get yours early and be prepared to pay a lot more for it, than you would have last year. That’s the way I see it.
