TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (WTXL) - This year's Christmas celebration comes with a hit for your wallet.

Christmas trees are more expensive, and the prices have gone up for the second year in a row.

Families hoping for the scent of fresh pine will especially pay more, with prices for real trees going up as much as ten percent this year, just like last year.

The Great Recession is to blame for the price increase.

Christmas tree farms often cut down trees only as they are sold.
