Christmas Tree Vendors See Increase in Business
Tree lots around the Valley have been flooded with families in search of the perfect Christmas tree and workers braved Monday's high temperatures to make sure the trees were watered, prepped and ready for display.
This year tree vendors are offering a wide variety of trees ranging from 2 to 18 feet tall and selling them between $15 and $800 dollars. Even though some of the trees are pretty pricey, they are going fast and vendors even have special trees for families wanting a white covered tree.
Christmas trees account for 250 fires annually and can be engulfed by flames in seconds and that is why fire officials are asking tree buyers to continue watering the tree.
