If you’re in need of some extra holiday cheer this year, you’re not alone. Approximately 20 million Christmas trees are sold annually, according to the Associated Press, and that number is expected to rise this year.

Due to the pandemic, many people are trading in their artificial trees for a fresh-cut version, as a way to make fun family memories or just because they have plenty of time to water them. When you’re all-in on buying a real Christmas tree, you don’t have to head out to a tree farm and chop one down yourself.

GOBankingRates found the average cost of a Christmas tree at top U.S. retailers is $112.63, but your total cost could be more or less, depending on where you shop and the tree you purchase. Here’s a look at what you can expect to spend on your tree this year.
