La Crosse, Wisconsin (WXOW) - The drought has killed many of the newly-planted Christmas trees.
Growers say they'll have to plant twice as many next year to make up for the loss.
According to the Wisconsin State Journal, Wisconsin has about 900 Christmas tree farms which produce nearly one million trees per year, which makes the state fifth in production nationally.
Not to worry though, growers say there should be plenty of trees this season because older trees have deeper root systems which can survive the drought conditions.
