Thanksgiving weekend is also known as the busiest time to buy live trees for Christmas.

Simmons said that about 95 percent of Christmas trees on the island are imported, which makes the supplies limited and raises the price.

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

Cynthia Mann a nursery specialist at Valley View Farms said, "One thing we always do here is when we sell you a fresh cut tree we always give you a nice new cut at the end of the tree that helps the tree absorb water".

The National Fire Protection Association says on average, one of every 31 reported Christmas tree fires results in death.

Some people already have their Christmas tree up.

This year he received 1,200 trees, which is 50% more than he expected to get. Bluebird Christmas Tree Farm is in Heiskell, owned by Leo Collins.

Nationwide, the cost is being passed down from growers, which amounts to an extra $10 to $20 per tree.

If you missed tonight's Christmas tree lighting, don't worry.

What was a tradition for many families for years, decades, or even generations, is no more this year. "It's phenomenal. I've never seen the growth and the good looking greenery as it is this year".

That's the signature tree of North Carolina, one of the nation's Christmas tree industry powerhouses, said Jennifer Greene, North Carolina Christmas Tree Association executive director.

"It's definitely more hard to get the Noble firs - and it has raised the wholesale price for us", she said.

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

Schmitt recommends people buy their trees early, before supply runs out. They bought a white, artificial one to match their mid-century home a year ago.

"Locally", he said, "we should be fine".
