Now that the Thanksgiving turkey's been eaten, it's time to pull out those Christmas decorations. And a big part of that? The Christmas tree. However, there's a lot of different opinions about what makes a great tree. One of the biggest factors? Real or artificial.

David Pollard is a tree farmer from North Carolina. He has two lots in  Shreveport-Bossier full of trees. He says there are many people opting for artificial trees, and that can hurt business a little. "There are so many large, huge growers and it's just tough to find a market for your trees and that's why I'm out here selling mine directly to the public," he says.

You can find Pollard's trees at the corner of Wallace Lake Road and East Bert Kouns or in the parking lot of Hollywood Video in Bossier City.
