Drought Killing Future Christmas Trees

Last updated on Monday, July 16, 2012

(UNDATED) - The July sun is taking a major strike at Christmas futures.

This year's drought has killed off most of the new trees planted this year.

Tom Dull with Dull's Farm says he could not save his newly planted trees because Mother Nature decided not to provide water.

Despite the drought dull says there is nothing to worry about this Christmas. This year's trees are already grown and are ready for market.

Dull says trees will not cost more and if they do find another retailer.

Customers won't see the effects of this year's drought for seven or eight years when the lost trees would have come to market. You can expect to see fewer varieties and slightly smaller trees.

Dull says he plans to double plant next year to make up for what he lost this year.
