Christmas trees still a hit despite poor economy

Despite the poor economy, Christmas tree sales seem to be chugging right along.

We visited Glenn Eames at his tree lot at the corner of Dawson Road and Slappey Boulevard.

He says they've been kept busy.

"Thanksgiving day and that whole weekend was really good, better than I expected and of course the first weekend in December is always good and it died last week," says Eames.

He still has a lot of great trees left--he'll be discounting them Monday to between $20 and $50 a piece.
