TYLER — Brown trees and brown grass - everywhere you turn here in East Texas.
It's already causing a concern for the most popular flora East Texas harvests...
So what about Christmas Trees? How are they holding up?
Today, KETK spoke with Nick Wiggins, owner of Plantation Pines in Tyler.
He says even though the Oaks and Elms on his property are struggling, his Christmas pines are just fine.
Forester Jason Ellis with the Texas Forest Service tells KETK, many East Texas trees are struggling, even dying.
But trees like Wiggins' pines are doing fine because they are several years old.
"The first year is critical - bar-none - and this year's been so bad that a lot of these folks that have spent that money and planted...they're just gonna have to start over," Ellis said.
The Texas Forest Service tells KETK, if the trees in your backyard look bad, don't count them dead just yet.
They may just be hibernating early to save up their resources.
