Rockin' around the Christmas tree stand

Tips on preventing Christmas tree fires this holiday season

There's a Christmas tree shortage across most of the country, but not so in Central Wisconsin. If the needles pull out easily, or if they appear a boring, lifeless green, that tree may be past its prime. If the base of the tree does dry out and seal up, you will have to re-cut the base to allow it to absorb sufficient water.

For the first time in Papa Noel's 37 years of business, there aren't enough trees, owner Jimmy Coan said. Thankfully my husband is more level headed and reminded me that we had 8-foot ceilings and I had a large angel that traditionally topped the tree.

Howell said they have hundreds of trees to choose from including scotch pine, white pine and canaan fir trees.

Over the last couple days, I've seen many people bringing trees home for the holidays. Many also sell fresh wreaths and some have tree stands to keep the tree well-watered.

The first documented use of a tree at Christmas belongs to both the city of Tallinn in Estonia and Riga in Latvia.

The National Christmas Tree Association said the sticker shock stems from the great recession, which led farmers to plant less trees creating a shortage.

Make sure your tree stand holds at least one gallon of water, and a larger reservoir is better still.

"They take oxygen and process it, as opposed to a fake tree, which can actually be harmful to you". Another drawback is that their needles are very sharp - this is not a good selection for homes with small children.

Christmas tree business owners said their orders could not be delivered or completed. In other words, if you are setting up multiple trees throughout your house and need to scale back the budget, spend less on the trees not front and center.

If the only spot for your tree is by a radiator, you have to accept that it's going to dry out. Experts say customers can expect to pay slightly higher prices this year, an average of about $10 more.

"Now we're finally caught up", Steiner said.

And, as Chris Nucifora said, it was good to have some advice from people with tree-cutting experience.

If you have a cat or dog, you may find that a tree with sharper needles will help discourage them from thinking this a new toy for them. "There aren't many Christmas trees growing there".
