Christmas trees en Drought Impacted Christmas Tree Growers <p>This year's drought has taken a toll on a crop that gets more attention this time of year: Christmas trees. &nbsp;But one expert says it has not affected sales.</p><p>"There is no shortage of trees, there's plenty to be had and the price hasn't gone up. What has gone up is basically based on inflation- nothing more. At least that's been my experience with people I've talked to in the industry," said David Daniken of the Illinois Christmas Tree Association.</p><p>Daniken works on a tree farm in Pocahontas, which is 40 miles east of St. Louis.</p><p></p> Mon, 03 Dec 2012 15:47:52 +0000 Rich Egger 25232 at Drought Impacted Christmas Tree Growers
