Despite Challenges Christmas Tree Farms Open For Business 

Christmas tree farms all over Maine are entering their busy season.

That includes “Trees to Please” in Norridgewock where owner Todd Murphy says he has a wide selection to offer.

But not all farms have been so fortunate. This year has been tough on some tree farms in maine who haven’t had large trees to offer and some are not even allowing people to cut their own trees down.

Murphy says excessive moisture has caused root rot on some of his trees.

“Happens a lot. More and more all the time,” he said. “It’s really tough. It’s root rot. It’s even hitting the Balsam Fur now. I grow several species, Canaan, Frasier, Balsam. Frazier it really hits really hard with root rot. We’ve been having problems with that.”
