CRESWELL, Ore. -- While you may not have the turkey for thanksgiving yet, one Christmas tree farmer said he's starting his sales early this year, saying mother nature has been cooperating.

Tom Salamun, owner of Twin Timbers Christmas Trees, said the first weekend of December is his busiest weekend. He plans to open this Saturday for families to pick out trees and bring them home since Christmas and Thanksgiving are so close this year.

Salamun said while this recent dry spell has left his trees stressed, a cooler summer and September rains have helped keep his trees healthy.

"We've gone to great lengths to manicure them and give them all that they need to be the quality that they are this year," Salamun said.

Salamun said even if you get a fresh-cut tree now, it should be good through Christmas. He said they have also started to harvest trees 50 feet tall for clients out of state.
