With just a couple of days until Christmas, business has slowed down at some East Tennessee tree farms.

JKL Christmas Tree Farms owner Jerrald Limbaugh said his big rush is over, but still expects to see some people who need to pick up a last minute tree.

Limbaugh said his East Knoxville farm has sold more than 200 trees this year, which is up 10 percent.

But Limbaugh said he's ready for anyone who still wants to pick up a tree.

"There are a few people who wait until the last day to put up a tree," said Limbaugh. "We're here to take care of those few people are left."

Limbaugh said he's already looking at next year's crop. According to Limbaugh, a white pine tree will take eight to 10 years to grow before he can sell it. Other types of trees may take even longer.
