The impact of Christmas tree production on the N.C. economy

North Carolina is the nation’s second-largest producer of Christmas trees. Sarah Curry offered that fact and many others during a presentation today to the John Locke Foundation’s Shaftesbury Society about the Christmas tree industry in the Tar Heel State.
