Thanksgiving is right around the corner, so that means holiday decorations will soon go up. For many, that means a Christmas tree - but will there be enough trees for everyone?

There was a glut of overproduction, causing many growers to stop planting for a while.

Hemlock Hardware says recent orders are still incomplete because they're missing about 20-25% of trees that are stuck in container ships.
Local businesses say their supply of Christmas trees will be out and ready to grab by the week of Thanksgiving.
