Nurseries across California are selling out of orchard trees.

Ag officials say the growing popularity of almonds and walnuts are impacting the demand for the commercial plant nurseries that sell young trees.

Nurseries say demand from farmers for new trees are so high that some nurseries have already sold out trees that will plant this winter, and are already taking orders for next year.
