Every year Christmas tree farmers lose a portion of their crop to a fungus that attacks the root of the tree. As Matt Martin reports, one tree farm in the Southern Tier has started planting a species that seems to be more resistant to the disease.
Dave Weil of Empire Evergreens in Painted Post is putting the final touches on a Christmas tree he has just sold.
"This is the final product. Ten years of work have gone into this moment when we hand it off to the customer and they can take it home and put it in their living room.”
