Tanned Christmas Tree Creates New Mix for 2021

After years of supply shortages and droughts this season, Christmas tree growers are now planning how to serve real trees on their holidays.

Broad Marsha Gray, Executive Director of Christmas Tree Promotions, will tell Brownfield in June. Large-scale production areas in Oregon experienced record high temperatures for several days.

“It was really difficult not only for small trees, but also for perfect, harvestable trees,” she says.

As a result, some varieties look tanned, the needles turn red, and Gray says that while they can be trimmed for the future, not all will sell.

“I think we have a lot,” she says. “They also have the ability to harvest the trees scheduled for next year,” she says.

Oregon is a national leader in the production of Christmas trees, followed by North Carolina, Michigan, and the Great Lakes of Upper. Gray says consumers are more likely to find unusual varieties this year as trees are redirected where they need to meet demand.

Real Christmas trees aren’t facing import delays, but Gray says a shortage of trucks and a tough growth period could lead to somewhat higher prices.
