Supply chain issues and challenges around climate change have combined this holiday season to create the perfect storm, and even the iconic Christmas tree – real or artificial – has been affected, reports CNBC.

“The demand this year is going to be extremely strong and so I think from a consumer perspective people definitely shouldn’t wait,” said Chris Butler, CEO of National Tree Company. “We’re seeing pretty strong growth right now already versus last year and so, I do think that we’re in for a big, big season this year.”

Butler advised that consumers can expect to see a 25 percent increase in prices this year.
