A nationwide Christmas tree shortage could spike tree prices in California. Christmas tree prices are expected to go up as supplies go down. Several Christmas tree farms in Oregon have closed down due to a shortage of fully grown trees. The hot, dry summers of 2017 and 2018 have destroyed thousands of young trees. Experts say customers can expect to pay $25 more this year than what they typically pay for a Christmas tree.
