If Only They Were Money Trees

With the amount of money you're already shelling out during the holiday season, it can be heartbreaking to watch Christmas tree prices rise every year. According to a survey conducted by the Real Christmas Tree Board in August 2022, 71% of the 55 wholesale Christmas tree growers surveyed predicted a wholesale price increase of 5% to 15% compared to 2021. So how much does a real Christmas tree cost in 2022, you ask? To answer that question, we looked at the price of six-foot Christmas trees in farms across the country. Here's what to expect this holiday season.
