Christmas Trees Fly Off the Lots This Year
Practice on December 19, 2012
Fritz Rapp and daughter Kayla Mudge bought a towering Christmas tree for their Baldwin Park home last year. But this holiday season, they have ordered six.
They plan to adorn their balcony, front porch, living room and patio with about $700 worth of Fraser firs “to make it festive and warm and loving and welcoming,” said Mudge, an attorney.
Mudge’s family isn’t typical, but industry experts predict American consumers will splurge on more and generally taller Christmas trees this holiday season.
