Christmas trees in the capital area were sold out on December 23 this year, resulting in some families having to go without a tree over the holidays.

Steinunn Reynisdóttir, who works at garden store Gardheimar, told Fréttabladid that the shortage in Christmas trees was probably caused by the decision of supermarkets Bónus and Krónan not to sell trees this year.

Reynisdóttir said the Forestry Department in Mosfellsbaer, outside Reykjavík, had tried to solve the problem by cutting down trees in a small forest near the town on December 23 and Christmas Eve.
