The Christmas tree season is underway and California tree growers are ready for the holiday.

Growers shape trees in the months leading up to Christmas, and those who sell trees through pre-cut lots have already harvested and shipped trees.

Cut-your-own Christmas tree farms say internet advertising has boosted sales and now they alert customers about the farm's activities through websites and social media.

Growers say Christmas tree farms at higher elevations saw some challenges because of a dry year, but overall the quality of the trees looks good.
