    Fresh Christmas trees will cost more for Texans, on average, than for people in any other state.

    People in Texas pay, on average, about $104 for a live Christmas tree, which is $31 more than the national average of $73, according to data gathered by Square and the National Christmas Tree Association.

    That added cost is largely due to decreased supply from some of the largest tree-producing states – Oregon is the top in the country – and the expense of trucking them across the country.

    But they are expecting a record demand for sales at Christmas Traditions in McKinney, and that is largely attributed to increased interest from the millennial generation.

    Lane and his staff were busy all this week setting up the trees ahead of the 9 a.m. Black Friday opening.
