Supply chains are affecting Tampa Bay tree suppliers. John Sansone who owns Great Lakes Christmas Tree Farms said “It’s a trucking situation from different areas we bring the trees in from such as Canada. We’re having problems with trucks — late deliveries from Canada.”
The owner of Gallaghers Pumpkins and Christmas Trees David Gallagher said “There’s like a 30 percent increase on shipping, so that’s why a lot of people are not bringing in trees this year.”
On top of that, prices for trees (real or fake) have gone up 10% – 30%! So get your trees early or you might end up with a Charile Brown looking Christmas tree.
