    OK folks. We are wanting to do Christmas Tree sales this year. We have a lot location that is just under an acre and has a chain link fence around it so it is secure. It is on a major highway here. We are looking for information on what other issues we should look out for. We are also looking for several vendors and supply houses. Any feedback would be helpful. We figure sales of about 1500 trees from Nov. 20 to Dec. 24.

    Here is in the Midwest christmas tree sales are on the decline, however our big selling point is Fresh cut tree's in water. We keep them in water and it makes them look great well into Dec 22. Good luck, year after year being in the same place is the best. People are tradition driven around christamas.
