Leftover Christmas trees are up this year

Christmas tree lots are getting rid of all the trees that didn't sell.

Glenn Eames, owner of Eames Tree lot  says they have more left over this year than normal.  He believes the short time between Thanksgiving and Christmas impacted sales.

He says they sold a little less than a thousand trees this year.  "We've got more trees than we normally have left. Last count was something like 125 trees left and normally we like to be under 25, 30 trees," said Eames.

Eames spoke to another tree farm in Columbus who had similar sales.

He says folks who have ponds typically pick up the trees over the next few days to help with fish habitat.
