For many families, getting a Christmas tree is serious business.

But this year it may be a different experience for some people thanks to a Christmas tree shortage that's been plaguing the industry for a few years now.

We talk more about the shortage and what it means for local growers with Seth Cranston, owner of Cranston's Tree Farm in Ashfield, Massachusetts, and David Morin, spokesperson for the Massachusetts Christmas Tree Association, and owner of Arrowhead Acres, an event space and Christmas tree farm in Uxbridge.

This segment aired on December 1, 2021.
