furs but a lot of this year's crop is being left behind unprecedented heat here last june seared these trees for three days straight it never gets 116 degrees in oregon that's unheard of at least up here and nothing survives and the top got completely fried greg smith is a third generation christmas tree farmer in the town of malala fields that should have been 100 percent clear cut we had a 20 percent rate of what we could sell
