If You Live In Bucks County, Here’s Why You Should Buy Your Christmas Tree In Jersey
If you haven't bought your Christmas tree yet, heads up!
A real tree costs more in Pennsylvania than it does in New Jersey, according to a new survey. Some could argue that, of course, something like that would cost less in the Garden State since gardening is in the name, but it's not exactly the case.
According to the Chamber of Commerce, the average six-foot real tree costs under $59 in the United States. The cost of a tree in New Jersey and Pennsylvania's is actually more than the national average.
You'll pay an average of $73 in Pennsylvania and $62 in New Jersey. You can see the map and prices for each state in the photo below.
New Jersey is closer to the average cost of a real tree, but what's upsetting is that Pennsylvania is listed as one of the top tree producing states and they still are expensive. You'd think they'd be cheaper, right?
If you're looking for a bargain then go to North Dakota where trees are only $33. New Yorkers are probably used to paying more for goods, but it's still hard to see that Christmas trees cost $90 there.
I prefer a fake a tree. It's fun to set up, you don't have to water it, no need to trim it, it doesn't shed regularly, and I'm not allergic to it. Plus, I'd get emotional throwing away a real tree every year. I get so sad when I see trees along the curb after the holiday just tossed. Yet if a real tree is your tradition then you should think about buying in NJ to save a little more green in your pocket.
