A massive deer invasion in Vicksburg, Michigan causes a veteran Christmas tree farm to shut its doors.
After selling Christmas trees for 30 years, Mott’s Christmas Barn is closing up shop this weekend. The Motts are closing the business because of the deer population that has been eating the Christmas trees on their property.
Apparently, the cut-your-own trees are no longer of high quality since the deer have eaten them up to four feet up the trunk. The deer have always been a problem, but recently there’s been a spike in their population.
Mott’s property is full of swamp and marshland, and the deer like to visit for the winter.
They’re beautiful animals, but overpopulation is causing destruction.
