Christmas trees to soar in price

Real Christmas trees are set to be up to 30% more expensive this festive season than in 2008, according to Monday’s Telegraaf.

Frank Bos of Greenteam Europe, which sells some 1.5 million Christmas trees a year across Europe, told the paper the price increase is due to a rise in demand.
In particular, the Nordmann fir (abies nordmanniana) is in demand this year, Bos said. Last year a Nordmann cost a maximum €50, but this year the average price will be between €45 and €60.
The quality of Christmas trees is extremely good because of the perfect growing conditions this summer, he said.
