Residents of Fairfax County who want a new Christmas tree should still be able to get the greenery for the holiday – for now.
Four Seasons Flower Market (6808 Elm Street) is one of the local suppliers of holiday trees in McLean. The lot had been filled with trees since Tuesday, but a worker there expected to be sold by mid-December.
During another Christmas season, sellers across the country say there was a huge demand for live trees.
“Anyone interested in this holiday should plan to buy it soon,” said Michael Wallace, director of communications for the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
The National Christmas Tree Association reported last year that tree buyers tend to be lower than usual, with an increase in urban areas, and sales occurring earlier than usual.
Despite media reports of a shortage of trees, a supply of fruits and vegetables is on the rise, with some horticulturists saying the “Christmas tree apocalypse” is unlikely.
“Contrary to the toilet paper in the spring of 2020, true Christmas trees will not disappear,” writes Bert Craig, a professor of fruit and vegetable at Michigan State University.
A.D. According to the latest agricultural statistics released in 2019, the number of Christmas trees dropped from 17.4 million in 2007 to 15.1 million in 2007. The business is generally small acres used to grow Christmas trees.
Industrial data shows that artificial tree sales have been on the rise in recent years.
In addition to the four seasons, the Tyson area and Fairfax County have many options for purchasing Christmas trees in general, including the Merfield Gardens Center, Deepol Urban Farm in Vienna and Medaz Farms with seven nursery stations.
The Great Vienna Optimist Club opened a tree sale at the Giant Foods Mall on Saturday (November 27th) and used the proceeds from the sale of the Treeiti United Methodist Church (1205 Dolly Madison Bolvid) in McLean. They support Scout and Youth programs.
