Keri and Daniel Hull cut down this year’s Christmas tree with their daughters Annastazia, 10, (left) and Vexlynn, 5, at Hamill Christmas Tree Farm in Roanoke on Friday. The family, of Garden City, goes to the tree farm every year. Keri grew up going with her family. They were not aware of this year’s tree shortage. During the recession, some growers planted fewer trees, leading to a shortage now.
