In Overland Park, Kansas, Family Tree Nursery prepares for the holiday season with a lot full of trees. Due to the demands of last years Christmas trees, this particular farm has faced issues with keeping items in stock. Starting November first orders started pouring in for the bigger trees, some costing up to $600. This farm is able to keep their supply of trees steady and their Christmas rush is well welcomed.

This farm is well prepared for the season, and sourcing trees from North Carolina has kept their farm afloat. On the other hand, not all regions have been as fortunate. The lack of rain and dryness has created a warning of fires in the Midwest as well as the Northwest has impacted the local tree supply.
