Oh Christmas Tree (1 x 30)


Christmas comes but once a year, but for thousands of Nova Scotia's Balsam Fir growers it's a year round occupation. During the past few decades the Christmas tree trade has grown into a multi-million dollar industry. But growers have had to face a host of new challenges. With a decrease in U.S. exports in recent years and aggressive competition from artificial trees and the less expensive U.S. grown Fraser fir, the industry is facing some stiff competition. In response to these challenges, growers are working on a plan to secure their future.
                          
Oh Christmas Tree is a half hour documentary that takes viewers inside the world of Nova Scotia Christmas trees. The film will introduce viewers to the growers and researchers working to keep the industry alive and highlight the huge Christmas tree that is sent to Boston each year.
