(Undated) -- Noble fir is considered a long-standing symbol associated with the Christmas season, but this year they may be hard to come by.
The Pacific Northwest Christmas Tree Association said there's a tree shortage all across America.
The organization says the shortage is due to the great recession back in 2008, when there was a huge surplus, prompting growers to plant fewer trees to save money.
Now, those cost-saving effects cant be felt around the U.S.
Shoppers can expect a smaller amount of trees to pick from, and the trees that are available will likely cost nearly ten-percent more.
