ABSTRACT
The article provides information on the reduced prices of Christmas trees in Las Vegas, Nevada. According to the article, the tough economic times hit Christmas tree lots in 2008, which led to several Las Vegas lots' decisions to cut prices of the pine trees as soon as their late November openings. The strategy reportedly worked because sales of the pine trees increased and by December 23, 2008, a lot near the Boulevard Mall had only about 20 trees left.
