The cost of real Christmas trees is up this year. The average price for a real tree this year is ranging between $80 and $100, up about 10% over last year.

The trees are in shorter supply this year, and the Texas A&M Forest Service says shipping costs are up, contributing to the increasing prices.

It's estimated 21-million real trees will be sold nationwide by Christmas.
