People are not only big into getting real Christmas trees this year, but also going to actual Christmas tree farms to choose their trees. It makes sense, as cutting down your own tree is an outdoor activity and therefore considered safer than any indoor activity during the pandemic. Plus, with cabin fever setting in, many outdoor activities are experiencing a boom in popularity. Workers at tree farms are reporting seeing more and more first-time real Christmas tree buyers, and also say they’re seeing many keeping true to their traditions and bringing their family out to choose and cut down their usual tree. The National Christmas Tree Association says sales of real trees are up all over, and they expect 25 to 30 million natural trees to be sold in the U.S. this holiday season.
