With Thanksgiving Day in the rearview mirror, many families will be heading to find the perfect Christmas tree for their home in the coming weeks. According to the Census of Horticultural Specialties, Wisconsin is ranked fifth worldwide for how many Christmas trees are grown, with over 850 independent tree farms. Randy Krueger of Krueger Tree Farm in southern Door County says this year’s crop of trees is excellent. He shares tips for keeping your tree fresh and green throughout the holiday season.
Most tree farms in Door and Kewaunee counties opened this weekend with holiday trees and wreaths contributing more than $16 million to the state’s economy annually.
