A lot of businesses are struggling this year because of the pandemic. But there are also a few that are thriving more than ever.
One of those industries is Christmas Tree Farms. Sales of Christmas trees are WAY up this year. A lot of it is first time buyers too. People who always had fake trees in the past opting for a real one this year. Which totally makes sense when you think about. People are looking for something to do, you can be outside, socially distant, spend time with the family. It’s a perfect way to spend a weekend during this holiday season.
The National Christmas Tree Association estimates that 25-30 million “real” Christmas trees have been sold so far in the U.S. Locally here in Connecticut places like Maple Row Farm and Fairview Tree Farm have been busier than ever.
