Michigan Christmas tree growers are expecting their best year in a decade.

Growers say the weather was just right this year, so expect trees to be a bit thicker and fuller. Industry experts tell The Detroit Free Press that it should be a great year to buy a natural tree in Michigan, with the state returning to supply levels they haven’t seen in a decade.

Like everything else, though, expect that tree to cost a little more this year. That’s because trees are transported from farms on trucks that burn diesel, which is up nearly $2 a gallon this year. Expect a good price to be around $10-$12 a foot, which could be a bit lower in rural areas.
