THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) - Christmas Tree sales took a plunge this holiday season.

In Thomasville the American Red Cross started selling trees in the Wal-Mart parking lot after Thanksgiving.

They've sold half the number of trees they sold last year. All the money goes to the American Red cross and stays locally.

"We've sold less than half of what we ordered so we have over 100 trees left," says Sam Brown with the American Red Cross Thomas County Chapter.

It's not too late to buy a Christmas tree, and waiting till the last minute can save you a few bucks.

All trees are now only 35 dollars. The money is for a good cause.

They'll be outside selling trees through Tuesday night. Feedback
