Back in 2011 the Spisso family from Washington D.C. had just enjoyed another Christmas together. Like any American family, they had a Christmas tree in their home to help them celebrate the festive season. However, when the time came to remove the tree, to their horror scores of little critters emerged.
In the run-up to Christmas, it’s relatively simple to find a place selling trees. According to a study by Pennsylvania State University, Americans splurge an incredible $250 million on Christmas trees every year. Furthermore, for those prepared to wait, trees become progressively cheaper as the big day approaches.
