A nationwide Christmas tree shortage is having an impact on at least one large tree farm in Northeastern Pennsylvania.

Pinecrest Tree Farms in New Ringgold ships trees to nurseries and tree lots across the east coast.

The owners say the demand is so high this year, they stopped taking new orders.

The shortage is the result of farmers planting fewer trees when demand plummeted during the recession.

Experts say if you wait to get your tree until later in the season, you may be forced to pay higher prices.
