Tree farms and lots in Door and Kewaunee counties expect to be kept busy this weekend as the holiday season gets underway. According to the Wisconsin Christmas Tree Producers Association, the industry generates more than $16 million for the state’s economy. Aissen Tree Farm tagged and named hundreds of trees for families to harvest this year. Co-owner Tammy Aissen says there are some things you can do to make sure your Christmas tree lasts until Santa’s visit.
Aissen says if you are not ready to bring your tree into the house to keep it in a cool place off of the concrete so it can remain in a dormant state until it is time to bring it inside.
