Everyone loves having a natural Christmas Tree up, believed to be better than the artificial ones you would find in the market. However, climate change may just change all that as the Christmas Tree farmers feel the brunt of natural occurrences which may eventually signal an end when it comes to savouring natural Christmas Trees in homes.
Christmas Tree farmers are reportedly forced to stop planting new trees to help them cut back on losses. Apparently in areas such as New Hampshire and Vermont, factors such as the March heatwave and heavy flooding have wiped out large numbers of crops.
This has thus contributed to shortages and losses for the tree farmers where majority have been advised to simply sell of their existing mature trees without replanting the ones which were burned or washed away.
The impact of such may not be felt immediately. Rather, expect it to sink in about 6 to 10 years.
