This Is Why Some Michigan Tree Farms Are Painting Christmas Trees
In recent years, some Christmas tree farms in Michigan have started selling painted Christmas trees to cater to customers looking for a unique and colorful holiday decoration.
The demand for painted Christmas trees has been growing, with some farms in Michigan, such as Ryan's Tree Farm in Ida, offering trees in various colors.
The concept of painting Christmas trees originated from farmers' need to cosmetically enhance browning trees that were on their way to being unsellable.
Today, painted trees are available in a wide range of colors, including purple, blue, pink, and even gold.
How Do They Paint The Christmas Trees?
The trees are coated with non-toxic acrylic paint using an airless sprayer, taking anywhere from 5 to 15 minutes, and then left to dry for several hours.
While traditional green Christmas trees continue to be the most popular choice, painted trees offer a fun and eye-catching alternative for those looking to make a statement with their holiday decorations.
How Much Does A Painted Christmas Tree Cost?
Painted trees typically cost around $50 more than their green counterparts
I'm all about people being creative and expressing themselves but for me it's a hard pass. Give me the traditional green Christmas tree and fill it up with as many Christmas ornaments as it can handle.
