2022 Christmas Tree Buying Advice: Start early, prepare to pay higher prices

LOS ANGELES (KABC) — Black Friday not only marks the start of the Christmas gift shopping season, but for many it’s also the time to choose a Christmas tree.

Retailers are warning consumers not to start looking for a tree early as supply is more limited and more expensive than usual this year.

In Southern California, prices can start as low as $95 and go up to over $400 depending on your size and tree species preference.

Trees are in high demand this year, but supply is low.

That American Christmas Tree Association says retailers are cutting orders this year.

Inflation, supply chain problems, drought and wildfires are all factors.

Many people heed the advice and hit tree plots early in Southern California.

“People are queuing at the gate,” said Brandon Moriarity, manager of the Mr. Jingles Christmas tree lot in Woodland Hills. “As soon as we open, we’ll have them rolling.”

According to ACTA, about 75% of US households put up Christmas trees in the past season. The noble fir is one of the most popular because of its longevity and its fragrance.

Live Christmas trees can last up to two months. However, don’t forget to water them and keep them away from direct sun and heat sources, including open flame sources such as a fireplace or candles.

Firefighters are reminding homeowners to remove live trees after the holiday before they become too dry and to have working smoke detectors in rooms.
