Study shows more people are buying real Christmas trees


EVANSVILLE, Ind. (WEHT) – As Christmas tree lots open for business across the Tri-State, a study shows more people are buying the real thing instead of artificial ones.

The National Christmas Tree Association reports a 20% increase in the number of real trees bought last year.

That’s higher than the 12% increase in sales of artificial ones.

People at the Boy Scout Troop 383 lot on Vann Ave. in Evansville said they’re noticing more younger people buying real trees.

Troop members have ordered more than 500 real trees for this season.

They hope to sell all of them by mid-December.
