Hundreds of Christmas trees will be sold this holiday season as people look for that perfect tree.
There are about 300 Christmas trees on display at Doumel Tree Farms in Midland.
Owners say they will sell out of these by Saturday, and business is up 5 percent over this time last year.
But not every tree farmer has been planting the seeds of success.
According the Michigan Christmas Tree Association, overall tree sales have been down the last few years. And just like other crops, weather has been a factor for Christmas tree growers this year.
"We actually had some, had a couple varieties that this year they break their bud early that got some frost damage, that we have had some due to frost. so we are kind of hurting like they are but luckily we still had about 90 percent we could harvest," said Doug Cook, owner of Doumel Tree Farms
Doumel Farms expects to sell about 2,000 trees this season.
