Christmas Trees: In Early and On Demand

Posted: Updated:

The turkeys aren't even in the oven yet and the Christmas trees are already in stock. And selling.

"We got them in yesterday from Oregon and they are already selling," said store team leader Janet Kurver at Whole Foods Market in south Reno. "It is earlier than we got them in last year but we've had 5 or 6 people buy trees already today."

The Garden Shop Nursery in west Reno got their shipment of 500 trees in yesterday as well.

"People do like to move right on from Thanksgiving to Christmas and this weekend will be busy," said Ed Bath of the Garden Shop Nursery. "These are all Noble Fir trees from Oregon. They were cut just last week and they will last through til January if not longer."

And even Home Depot is seeing customers looking for trees already.

"We used to sell a thousand or even 2,000 artificial trees for Christmas. We'll only have about 700 this year," says Jim Steelman of Home Depot. "A lot of people are moving to the artificial trees instead. Less messy, last for years. But there are still folks who want the smell of a fresh cut tree. And we've already netted up and sold a few."

The prices on the fresh cut trees are about the same as last year. We saw prices anywhere from $20 a piece for small tabletop trees....to an average of about $45 for a 6-foot Noble Fir to 9 foot trees for more than $100. Most of the tree lots will go up this weekend, after the big turkey dinner.
