There’s Christmas tree shortage this holiday season because of the drought this past year but see where they’re charging $1,000 for a Christmas tree right NOW…
MSN.com says that some Christmas trees are unusually expensive in New York right now with one vendor asking $77 per foot for a tree! The example they cite is a 13 foot tree. It costs $750 but “with delivery, installation with a stand and tip would be $1,000.”
$1,000 for a Christmas tree?! They say that some 2-4 foot “table top” trees are still a deal at about $25, but if you want a big tree in NYC – you’re going to have to pay a premium price this holiday season.
Of course, there’s always the option of buying a fake tree, too!
