2023 Christmas tree price increases more subdued  

Rising input costs are having less of an impact on Christmas tree growers this year.

Real Christmas Tree Board Executive Director Marsha Gray tells Brownfield last year growers in their annual survey said they raised prices up to 15 percent.

“This year, 75 percent said zero up to 5 percent, so we really saw a kind of a calming down of that inflation factor,” she shares.

Gray says more manageable input costs are helping to reduce increases.

“The previous year, I believe they were saying that their input costs were between 11 and 20 percent increased year over year, this year under 10 percent,” she says.

She says big trees, nine feet or larger, will likely be in limited supply after the first week of December and the selection starts to dwindle because of early season demand.
