Christmas Tree Exports

Canada’s trade minister predicted a rise in Christmas tree exports this season, amid reported shortages in the United States. America’s northern neighbor is known for producing bushy, winter-resilient firs, pines and spruces, ideal for decoration during the holiday season, AFP reported. “Christmas trees represent a key export for Canada,” Trade Minister Ed Fast said in a statement. “Following a decrease in demand for Canadian Christmas trees during the recession in the United States in 2008 and 2009, Canadian tree exports are on the rise, especially due to a Christmas tree shortage in the United States.” Canada is the world’s largest exporter of Christmas trees, according to the government.
