Weather Patterns May Affect Your Choice Of Christmas Tree


Thousands of people will head to Christmas tree farms over the next month.

The recent heavy downpours haven’t affected the trees’ ability to grow, although too much water during the prime growing season can.

June, July and August are the critical months for a tree to get the right amount of water it needs.

Ideally, experts say the trees need about an inch of water every week.

During periods of too much rain and then extended dry periods, the Christmas trees can actually end up shorter thanks to the irregular growing conditions.

Overall the weather has cooperated to enable farmers like Stephen Steed from the Merry Christmas Tree Farm in Central, SC to provide their customers with a large selection of healthy and tall Christmas trees.
