NORMAN, Okla. —

Due to shipping problems nationwide, Oklahomans may see a delay when searching for a Christmas tree.

KOCO 5 spoke to a local tree farm about what they have seen this season. The Wells Christmas Tree Farm grows a variety of different trees.

“Families and friends are going to fill this place and have a good time to start off their holiday season,” said Jesse Wells of Wells Christmas Tree Farm.

The farm opens in Norman this Friday, and this season has been their hardest yet.

“There are shortages across the country and it’s due to the heatwave they had in Oregon. They lost a ton of trees. Some of our growers in Michigan had an unusual freeze this year,” Wells said.

The hundreds of trees range from Wisconsin, Michigan and Oregon. Shipping has been a challenge for tree farms everywhere.

“One of our brokers, the day we were supposed to pick up trees, said they didn’t have any trucks for us,” Wells said.

However, the trees arrived just in time. The Wells family believes it was a Christmas miracle.

“We have more trees than we had last year, but you might not get the size or type that you want,” Wells said.

Even after a few hard weeks, this tree farm will do everything it can to make sure there are trees for customers in time for Christmas.
