The supply of Christmas trees in the United States this year is ample, but it is difficult for consumers to expect to enjoy “clearance prices.”

After Thanksgiving, many American families begin purchasing Christmas trees, hoping to have a nice Fraser fir or red pine at home. Industry players pointed out that although there is no shortage of Christmas tree supplies in the United States this year, consumers cannot expect “clearance” sales due to inflation.

A Christmas tree typically takes eight to 10 years to grow, and the National Christmas Tree Association (NCTA) says Christmas tree farms are promising an ample supply this year. Chief executive Tim O’Connor said he had not heard of anyone being unable to buy a Christmas tree and he did not expect that to happen this year. The farm is dealing with a limited but ample supply of trees, as it has been since 2016.

However, the Christmas tree farm said it would increase itsretail sellerWholesale prices will increase much less than last year. The Real Christmas Tree Board (RCTB), an industry group, surveyed 49 Christmas tree wholesale farms in September and found that 25% would increase wholesale prices by 5% to 15% this year, with 48% dropping prices by 5%. Will increase by 27%, and will not increase by 27%. price hike. These farms supply about two-thirds of the Christmas trees used during the year-end shopping season.

Marsha Gray, executive director of the RCTB, said starting wholesale prices for Christmas trees this year will be more controlled than last year, mainly because supply looks good. He said factors affecting the price of Christmas trees last year included input costs such as labor, fertilizer and fuel, but these costs have fallen this year, and operators are beginning to bear most of the operating costs themselves rather than passing them on to retail customers. You can choose the option. ,

Whether Christmas trees will be cheaper for consumers than last year is difficult to predict because retailers have their own pricing strategies. Gray said administrative and inventory costs also factor into pricing at big-box or garden stores.

O’Connor said the average retail price of Christmas trees last year was $80, which was $10 more than the year before, but inflation has slowed this year, so the price increase may be smaller.
