Local Christmas tree supply dwindling
If you're still looking to get a live Christmas tree, officials say you better hurry.
Several local tree growers said they are either out of full-sized live trees or are down to just a handful.
University of Illinois horticulture educator Sandy Mason said the shortage could be due to a rush on trees early on in the holiday season.
Mason said if you still need a tree, you should call around and see which growers have trees available. She said you may have to settle for a tree that's not your definition of perfect.
