Friday after Thanksgiving is often the time when people start to purchase their Christmas trees.
his year's drought did take a bit of a toll.
National Christmas Tree Association is saying rainfall is the biggest factor. But they say most of the trees affected were younger and would not have been marketable by Dec. 25.
