Dalhousie scientist's new Christmas tree should keep its needles

The Martin family has been selling trees for almost a half-century.

Almost 15 years ago, lifelong Susquehanna County residents Tom and Emily Perkins planted their first Christmas trees on the property across the road from their home.

Macklin says while his lot is fully stocked, many others may find themselves scraping by.

"For now, we're in good shape but I don't know if we can sustain it through the entire season", said Leo Collins, owner of Bluebird Christmas Tree Farm.

At Erway's Christmas Tree Adventure in Wilson, they're harvesting their locally grown Christmas Trees.

Iran's Supreme Leader Hails End of Islamic State 'Tumor'
But the terrorist group still controls parts of the sparsely-populated wastelands between the rivers Tigris and Euphrates. Iran has has sent thousands of fighters to Iraq and Syria to battle IS and other groups.

Over 80 Christmas tree growers from across the country are now harvesting their seasonal crop. The next year, he made a decision to use that technique with a piece of doweling, drilling holes in it and inserting cedar branches, entirely skipping the real tree.

Two additional pending technologies include a delaying agent or spray and a protocol for post-harvest storage and transport.

Experts say a tight economy and less demand for real trees have hurt the industry and that buyers should expect higher prices for trees this year. Hybridization was used to create balsam fir with the desired traits. "I believe the true potential of the Cooperatives' success and all that has been achieved, will only be truly realized by generations to come". The needles should be fresh and flexible, and should not come off if you run your hand over a branch.

Christmas tree wholesalers have been calling Wilson this year. Christmas tree permits from the Willamette National Forest are $5. Ask the retailer at the tree lot if the trees were delivered all at one time at the beginning of the season or multiple shipments were brought in throughout the season. "It's hard to be in a bad mood when you are shopping for Christmas trees".

Willie Cooper, who has been with the organization for 35 years and now serves as its community relations director, said the annual event is one of the most important for the club.

The search for Christmas trees also takes people to U-cut tree farms and national forests.
