Christmas trees will probably be more expensive this year. According to the Federal Association of Christmas Tree Manufacturers, the reason is higher costs due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Last year the price range was 18 to 23 euros. The dealers would have to create hygiene concepts, reserve more space and possibly employ more staff. In large cities, prices are usually higher than in rural areas. Rometsch reckons with 12 to 16 euros per meter for blue fir and 9 and 12 euros per meter for spruce. The market share of the Nordmann fir, which is preferred for its soft and tight needles, is 75 to 80 percent. There is enough offer. “We have good qualities,” said Rometsch.

Hope from stable sales

The managing director hopes for stable sales of 20 to 22 million Christmas trees this year in Germany. But the industry is insecure. It is to be expected that decorative trees will be in less demand, for example because of canceled Christmas markets. “The fear is that less will take place in the commercial sector and in public space.”

On the other hand, the hope is that people want to make themselves particularly comfortable at home during the crisis - and therefore buy a tree sooner than usual. “There is a fear that everything will escalate even more,” said Rometsch.

The African swine fever is also causing great concern for many companies. According to Rometsch, producers can no longer market their Christmas trees where restricted areas are set up. “If a company is in the restricted area, it stays in its trees.” No products may be brought out. (dpa)
