"The holiday season that would be fun to look at Christmas trees and how they become a staple in homes across the country. Doug Hundley is a spokesman for the National Christmas Tree Association. He says that no one really knows when the first Christmas trees came to be. It probably goes back much further than we know. But we do know that there were Europeans bringing evergreen greenery in the foremost garland that you would hang from ceilings and walls. And free standing Christmas trees assed far back is the 15 hundreds. It probably started a intern, ear Germany and by the early 17 hundreds we had, of course, the immigration of the Europeans to the United States. And shortly thereafter, there are records of German settlers, uh, celebrating Christmas with evergreen greenery, tips and Christmas trees by the early 18 hundreds. But he says the early traditions of the Christmas trees are similar to what we do now, every year. It's a very, very old tradition at the winner Soltis the darkest night the longest nights shortest days of the year to bring in evergreen granary to remove Undersold that spring is now on its way. It may be another month or two before you see new growth on the trees outside, But you just bring that you bring some of that living. Nature into the house and the basically the dead of winter. You know, the Christian traditions and the European. They become very mashed and just bring in something green In the winter time. It was the most important thing. They would often decorate the trees with apples. That they had stored from the fall and hanging candy from the trees course. Uh, it was some point they did begin using candles on the trees. European still use candles. They don't like him all the time. They will light him on Christmas Eve and as a family celebrate the holiday, usually by standing around the tree and singing for traditional songs and hymns. One of the great traditions in this country, of course, is the official Christmas tree at the White House. The National Christmas Tree Association is part of that we put that own since the Christmas tree industry is is an American. Agricultural industry. We have state tree associations across the nation. Almost every state in our country grows Christmas trees, and many of them have Associations on they have big meetings, conventions and they have competitions they bring in trees compete with one another and the and the winner of those competitions. Go to a national contest with the National Christmas Tree Association, our association and then we take the winner of that, and they're the ones that were asked to bring a tree to the White House every year. And it goes into the blue room, and it's received by the president is in in the first lady. Now there are people who prefer an artificial tree over a living one. And I asked Doug if the Green movement plays any part in making a dent in his sales. That's what we suspect is happening. The young people When I say young people I'm gonna say right now. The millennial generation I'm a baby boomer. My kids are millennials. They've started their families, and they had young Children. And there's no question that that isn't that that's important, too young families and going back to the real tree I think is happening. You know in a sizable way because the millennials are known to be a generation of Children that have grown up to want. The green movement like you say Organic foods, organic fabrics. They wanted their Maura the next they want to experience names, their outdoorsy people. And they just are going. I think back to the real tree, even if they grew up with artificial case. Finally, I wanted to know if the Corona virus pandemic has had an effect on business since the pandemic started in February. Christmas Tree growing is a lot of work. Christmas trees take 7 to 10 years to grow big enough to use people don't often realize that and it takes a lot of labor. Anil animal and materials and land and it's hard work. And so we had we have we have adjusted well, the coded. Fortunately, the growing of Christmas trees is an outdoor experience. So being outdoors has been a lot safer than an indoor working environment when it comes to the retailing of trees there, either about a third of retail. Sales are are done in choosing cuts, actually, on the farm where you cut the.

I'm Lauren Vogel bomb and during the final month of the year or sometimes much sooner vast numbers of harvested trees begin their migration indoors or their festooned with ribbons garlands, ornaments and lights, although these trees are grown in the spirit of Christmas. They don't magically or genetically aspire to a perfectly peaked shape after Christmas. Trees reach a height of about three to four feet that's around one meter or should workers start helping the shape along with the process called shearing. The trees do most of their new growth in the spring after that starts hardening up in the summer workers share each tree individually with long sharp knives. The most common types of Christmas. Tree are Douglas fir Canaan for Frazier for and several species of spruce or pine however out of these six hundred and thirty species of conifers in the world, the majority don't actually grow in a strictly conical shape.

If the sun isn't blocked by wide top layers, this tiered arrangement allows the trees to shake off heavy snowfall and the wide spaces between branches that the winds whipped through without causing too much damage, although synthetic Christmas trees, don't generally drop needles on the floor or pose a fire damaged by drying out. They can't replicate the experience of selecting a real Christmas tree. And for a lot of people. It just isn't Christmas without the pie.
