Thanksgiving week means the arrival and opening of Christmas tree lots along the coast.
The crew at Robert Anderson's tree lot in Ocean Springs is bracing for a busy weekend. They're expecting to sell hundreds of frasier firs from North Carolina and blue spruce trees from Colorado.
There's a good supply of trees this season. The price range at the Ocean Springs lot ranges from $25 to nearly $200.
"We start Thanksgiving weekend. That is our busiest weekend. But after that it stays busy until we sell out," Christmas Tree Lot Manager Judy Williams said.
