It may take 10 years to grow a seven-foot tall Christmas tree, but there are hundreds for you to choose from, and the state Department of Agriculture Secretary Ed Kee says you've got more than a dozen local options.
"They are great, we have about 30 Christmas tree growers up and down the state, and they do a great job in all sizes of trees, and as you can imagine ,it's a great family experience to take the gang out, pick out a Christmas tree, and bring it back home," says Kee.
