It's a sure sign that the holiday season is fast approaching. Oregon's $110 million Christmas tree industry is a-buzz with activity: "Shippers are cutting trees right now. They are processing those trees; they are loading trucks and sending them out of state to other states or to foreign countries. Over 80% of the trees that we harvest in Oregon go out of state." Gary McAninch of the Oregon Department of Agriculture says early shipments have aleady gone to Mexico, Guam and a few Pacific Rim countries. Oregon growers harvest 7.8 million Christmas trees annually and expect this year to be no different.
