Freshly-Cut Christmas Trees Are Prized for the Holidays, but Require Attention

For many Floridians, visiting a choose-and-cut farm to select a Christmas tree is an enjoyable family holiday experience. According to the National Christmas Tree Association (NCTA), consumers purchased more than 33 million live trees across the country during the holiday season last year. Twenty-seven percent of them were harvested at choose-and-cut farms.

  • A Cheer For Our Christmas Tradition

    There are many Floridians living today who remember a different Christmas experience. They can recall what the celebration was like before World War II.

    The fundamental religious meaning of Christmas was the same, of course. But material conditions were quite different—especially in rural areas.

    Most households contained nothing in the way of automatic appliances or equipment. In many locations electrical power was still a novelty; few families had immediate access to telephones. A fireplace or cook stove provided heat. Drafts blew constantly, drawn through loosely sealed windows and separations between joints in the walls and floors.
