People Are Replacing Their Christmas Trees With Pineapples This Year Because Summer

Melania Trump has continued the time-honored, first lady tradition of receiving the official White House Christmas tree.

For some people, it's not too early to pick out a Christmas tree. "The weather has been good, and there is a good bit of interest in real trees".

The Millers continue to harvest timber from the forestland, market handmade Christmas wreaths and operate Twin Creek Nursery and Green House, a greenhouse business started by Karen's brother in 1972. "A small farm might have 2,000 trees and sell 200". If the water level drops below the base of the tree, a seal of dried sap will form over the cut stump within four to six hours, preventing the tree from absorbing water later.

Some Christmas tree sellers in North Carolina told the Charlotte Observer that they've received so few trees this year that they're anxious about running out before Christmas.

Justin Sanchez, owner of a tree farm, said he's facing a pretty big shortage and is cutting back on the number of tree lots. There are about 1,300 growers in North Carolina, according to the N.C. Christmas Tree Association. He said he has seen more farms getting out of the Christmas tree business in recent years.

They will be open Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m.to 4 p.m.
