That shortage means finding a tree may be harder, and buying it may be more expensive. Others will be dragging them out of the attic once we're on the far side of Thanksgiving. But at least it was a real tree.

Kathy Kogut, Executive Director of the Connecticut Christmas Tree Growers Association, said the popularity of the choose-and-cut farm has helped renew the tradition of the entire family selecting and cutting a Christmas tree.

"In our cool wet winters, a tree outside in cool conditions can maintain "freshness" for months", Landren wrote via email. Toward Huntington, though, the leader of Boy Scout Troop 63 tells WSAZ their tree order was cancelled, ending a almost 40-year tradition of selling fresh Christmas trees.

"We plant in the spring, March or April usually", he said.

"The longer you wait the less selection you have", says Shrake.

Zellner has been in the Christmas tree business for years.

This year customers may want to head to the Christmas tree lot a little earlier as a tree shortage is hitting the entire country.

The San Diego Fire-Rescue Department is issuing a warning about fire risks associated with Christmas trees and holiday decorations. They plan on having a good time. "They've gone to a lot of effort to get here", he said.

The lingering effect of the Great Recession isn't the only challenge for tree farmers and sellers.

"In the last five years, the prices at the farm have nearly more than doubled,"Falco said". It's the experience of going out with the family and just walking around and enjoying it.

Crowds filled the street along the riverfront as the fun started up, with live music, free hot chocolate, story telling for the kids and even a special appearance from Santa.

"We've always had one", she said with a shrug.
