Local Lots Ready With The Season's First Christmas Trees

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.

The Ocean Springs lot is located at Highway 90 and Bechtel Boulevard. It's open 9am-9pm.
