Albany -- This is one of the biggest days of the year for Christmas tree sales. Business was very good at lots around Southwest Georgia. At Haskins Tree Farm customers were wanting to get the pick of the best trees.

This lot sells only frazier firs from North Carolina, because that is what most of their customers want. The Chad Gunter family traditionally buys their Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving.

Tree Buyer Chad Gunter said "We sure do. Get it here about every year right after Thanksgiving. Kind of celebrate Thanksgiving as well as Christmas."

Clint Watson of Haskins Tree Farm said "Some people hunt different trees. Some want fat, some want tall, some want short,some want skinny. I gues we're all just different in different ways."

Daughter Elizabeth picks out a nine foot frazier fir for the Gunter home. The trees cost 35 dollars and up, depending on height.
