Hawaii is nearly out of Christmas trees, with only about 45 left. Despite what the story below says, those 4 foot trees sold for about $160 EACH.

Tree vendor flying in a few


By Lynda Arakawa
Honolulu Advertiser Staff Writer

Attention, Christmas tree shoppers: You may have another chance at getting a real tree this year.

Christmas tree vendor Mele Turner is bringing in about 70 to 100 more trees by air and will sell them Saturday morning at his tree lot in Market City Shopping Center.

The Douglas and Noble firs will be 4 to 6 feet.

The Douglas firs will probably cost around $85 to $95, to make up for the airfreight costs, Turner said. The Nobles will cost a bit more.

"I'm trying to accommodate people," Turner said yesterday. "My phone is ringing off the hook. ... There are so many people that just gotta have a tree. And, within reason, they're going to pay. They know that the airfreight it costs more than the tree."

Christmas trees have suddenly become a rare commodity because at least some vendors, stung by last year's glut of trees, ordered fewer trees this season. Many stores and Christmas tree lots on O'ahu sold out last weekend and have turned away hundreds of disappointed potential customers.

Matson Navigation Co. and Horizon Lines both said they shipped fewer trees this year. Matson's final tree shipment was Dec. 5; Horizon's last shipment was last week.

Turner said that when he airfreighted additional Christmas trees about 10 years ago, people lined up and took numbers. The trees "were gone in an hour," he said.

He said that the sales on Saturday will be conducted on a first-come, first-served basis and that he is working on a system to keep the process orderly. "I don't want people fighting over trees," he said.

Okay, so I need to work today and get everything done and organized before the new year. I have a crap load to do. Ugh.

I will leave you guys with my friend the De-Oh-double-Gee. If you have any questions about anything, he will be more than happy to help. I trust his insight in my absence.

Enjoy!
