Market Update - July 2017

For many years Santa & Sons Christmas Trees retail Christmas tree lot has been the centerpiece of our farm marketing efforts. So we understand all too well the level of commitment it takes to pull off a successful retail tree lot and feel compelled to give everyone the heads up on the current supply situation for wholesale Christmas trees.

The shortage of Noble Fir Christmas trees that I have been talking about for so many years has finally reached its peak. Like most other independent Christmas tree growers, our own fields are comprised only of young trees planted after the worst of the recession years. During those years the banks weren’t lending and we were all struggling just to keep our businesses afloat. No one was able to plant new fields, us included. Now, eight years later there are virtually no harvest size trees at any of the Christmas tree farms. The older tree fields are gone and the younger fields aren’t ready yet.

It turns out the shortage of Christmas trees in the Pacific Northwest goes way beyond Noble Fir too, as there doesn't seem to be much in the way of Grand Fir or Nordmann Fir Christmas trees available either. There are just far, far fewer fields of trees in the ground of all varieties.

Like nearly all of the wholesale Christmas tree farms, Santa & Sons is sold out for the 2017 season and it is likely to be several more years before we return to full production. If you are still looking for trees you are going to hear that refrain a lot. I wish we had better news but it is always better to know the facts.
