Christmas Tree Sales Brisk Despite Economy

There may be fewer presents under that Christmas tree this year, but it seems few families are giving up the tradition of having a tree.  Mike Meyer owns Meyer Christmas Tree Farm in Southern Indiana.  He says sales don’t seem to be impacted by the down economy.“It seems about the same.  There are some people that money is no object and there are some people looking for bargains.  In general it seems about normal, about like it has been in the past, says Meyer.In an economy that’s anything but normal, that’s good news for Kentucky’s many Christmas tree farms.  Nationwide, over 31 million real Christmas trees were sold last year at an average cost of more than forty dollars, up from a slight decline in 2006.- by Raj Ahuja
