"Yeah, This is a facility where we keep the seas, spruce tops and Obviously it smells like Christmas in here. It's about Nick points to a pile of 1300 spruce tops he recently confiscated from someone who cut them illegally on private land without a permit. On any given night. Two people in a 78 hour period can cut roughly 1000 tops. The stolen tops can sell for as much as a buck apiece to unlicensed buyers. So far this season, Conservation officers have seized well over 15,000 spruce tops. They say that's the most they've ever confiscated in a year, But still it's a tiny fraction of the overall market. The state estimates that holiday greenery including spruce tops, birch poles and balsam bows that I used to make reads is a $23 million industry. So the cost of the thefts It's a rounding error. It doesn't even register. Sean, timid and co. Owns a small family business called Black Spruce Holdings this fall with his dad, his brother and a couple dozen crew members. They cut over one million spruce tops from state and federal forests and private land. It's enough to fill about 50 big refrigerated trucks. Timon in is an investment guy. He started the spruce top business 20 years ago as a side hustle now the timid in cell two commercial greenhouses, which used the spruce tops to make decorative holiday pots that are sold nationwide. In our largest account took over 400,000 tops. That's many, many pots that are being made again to these retail chains across the country. The D i y market is also booming, spurred on by social media, like Pinterest and Instagram. A lot of people wonder if cutting off the tops hurts the spruce trees. But Kristin Berg strand with the Minnesota Deanna's forestry Division, says it won't if it's done correctly, But really what the tree does is throw up a new leader of growth. So it can make the tree not have as good of form. But it doesn't harm the tree and in 5 to 10 years, the treetop could be harvested again in northeastern Minnesota. I'm Dan Crocker for marketplace.

It was up a bit in July 6/10 percent to be exact month on month. Those gas prices. Mostly consumer spending is going up to slowly. Yes, but it's going up. But given everything that has happened this year, how we're spending has changed. Here's what some of our regulars are noticing. Hi. This is should it to charity from the San Francisco Bay area. A number of local gyms are closed at the moment, and people have shifted to online classes using weights and equipment at home. So all of a sudden the prices of these weeps even second hand ones, and Craigslist have gone up a lot. My wife and I decided to buy a set of dumbbells and kettlebells recently and they cost almost double per pound off it if you buy them from the local store. Compared to ordering them online from a Chinese retailer. We bought local since a. We needed them immediately and be who we want to support local businesses. This is Ellen Murphy at home in Mission Hills, Kansas. We have a new tradition since the quarantine took effect. We replaced our Saturday evening dates when we would go to a movie and then go get a pizza. With making pizza on our grill. Even though this makes the pizza more expensive When you consider that we cancel our family vacation and a couple of weeks long weekend trips to Northern California probably works out. Economically to make pizza at home. This's Kelly Kolinsky in Columbus, Ohio. At one point I was considering making a few purchases for my home considering that, you know, I've been spending so much time there, but Just recently. The organization I work for has undergone, you know, a significant budget constraints do the Corona virus and as a result, we've we've undergone a reduction in pay for at least a year. So I'm only buying what I need and just forgoing things that I would like to have. My name is Chi a price Then I'm calling from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Here. Food prices are going down. Finally, they're not as high as they were. A month and 1/2 2 months ago, my part time job I shop for people who ordered groceries online at a local Grocery store chain here, and I've noticed that family's heir baking more in making more Sunday, like dinners, So I'm happy to see that families were doing things together.
