China's Fake-Christmas-Tree Hegemony

Posted by: Joshua Green on November 29, 2011

Fake_trees.jpg

Not long ago, the Obama administration briefly got caught up in what looked to be a hilariously tone-deaf bit of Fox News bait: the U.S. Agriculture Department was planning to impose a 15 cent-per-tree fee on Christmas trees, which was — immediately and inevitably — dubbed a “Christmas Tree tax” by gleeful conservatives. The fee/tax had the added feature of playing into the whole Fox News War-on-Christmas nonsense, so you pretty much knew how this was going to end. Sure enough, on Nov. 17th, the White House halted the fee.

If you looked beyond the Drudge Report headline, though, the story turned out to be a bit more complicated. The National Christmas Tree Association had actually requested the fee in order to fund an intensified marketing campaign to “enhance the image of Christmas trees and the Christmas tree industry in the United States.” Per the Federal Registry (via ABC News), the NCTA had in mind a “program of promotion, research, evaluation and information designed to strengthen the Christmas tree industry’s position in the marketplace; maintain and expend existing markets for Christmas trees; and to carry out programs, plans, and projects designed to provide maximum benefits to the Christmas tree industry.”

I confess to having read about this at the time and wondered, “Why on earth do Christmas trees need a promotional campaign? What’s impinging on their market share, Hanukkah?”

It turns out the correct answer is: China. Specifically, China’s cheap, fake Christmas trees, which are increasingly threatening our own authentic, domestic-grown trees and the patriotic Americans who labor to supply them. I was alerted to this threat by a great article from Caitlin Webber in Bloomberg Government (subscription required) that includes this choice quote from Pam Helsing of the NCTA about the looming menace of Chinese Christmas tree hegemony: “The ‘fake-tree companies have increased their advertising and gone on the attack against real Christmas trees.’” BGOV kindly let me reproduce the above graph that illustrates the problem.

Hence the need for a marketing campaign. And now that that’s been killed (or, in Washington parlance, “delayed for further study”), the Obama critics have actually succeeded in aiding the perfidious fake-Chinese-Christmas-tree industry at the expense of the real Americans they profess to be defending. If there’s any justice in the world, someone’s getting coal in their stocking.

Wow, you really missed what Conservatives were saying about this entire thing. The point was that the Christmas Tree Association could not get it's member's to agree to the fee so they went to Government to FORCE them to pay the fee.

SO it is sort of like this, asking a group if they would all be willing to chip in $5 to pay for a Business Christmas Party and then after everyone says they would rather not do so, then going to the Boss and having him simply take out $5.00 from everyone's check in order to pay for the Party.

SO perhaps you have a mistaken idea about what Conservatives believe, but that is the gist of the reason they are upset about the 'Christmas Tree Tax' it is a special interest group going to the Government to impose a fee that they could not get people to 'willingly' pay.

If, after Christmas, you've ever taken your tree out and burned it, you'd see that it goes up in flames as if it was soaked in gasoline! Dry evergreen trees burn like crazy, that's why I stopped buying live trees and using an artificial tree. I sleep better at night knowing there's not a potential firebomb in my living room!

Innocent, except for the fact that the Business Christmas Party is a luxury that some people can honestly say is not in their best interests (alcoholics and atheists don't do well at those kinds of things), and the advertising campaign is something that will help everyone do better, even if they don't think it's really necessary. The government is there to enforce rules that benefit everyone when individuals aren't necessarily willing to participate.

Except the Business Christmas Party is a marketing campaign that could boost revenue for America's tree growers. Depending on the margins for tree growing, 15cents may be well worth the boost in trees sold.

Fox News = Bah Humbug!

No the conservatives say they don't like big government and government interference. Only when it's their agenda then government is okay.

November 29, 2011 3:09 PM

No, it's not like that at all. It couldn't get all members to agree, but a majority did. Your analogy stinks, because as usual, you can only see in simplistic absolutes, and therefore your logic is tainted. Of course this was how you would see it, how else could it be painted to support your view?

It doesn't change the fact that the end result hurts American businesses, helps the Chinese, and everyone still overlooks the incredible waste of money and time it was to even bring attention to it.

But please, keep up that partisan line...I'm sure that will help move us along to something better.

So apparently Americans are too stupid to choose between a cheap fake tree and an expensive freshly killed tree... so you want the government to raise the prices of fresh trees even more so American's can be told what they need to buy.

Right.. makes perfect sense..

@ Pckr
It's because of people like you spreading misinformation about farm-grown trees that a promotion campaign is needed.

I'd bet you a thousand dollars you couldn't get my tree to ignite after Christmas unless you actually used gasoline. Here's what happens when you water a tree ...a fireman can't get it to ignite even with a blowtorch

Thank goodness that died.
Look, if the NCTA wants to spend more on marketing, why don't they just raise their dues and increase their marketing budget?
Why does the government have to collect a tax for them?
There are certainly a few large producers of trees that could afford to pay for the marketing, but they have decided they do not like all the upstarts all over the country getting a free ride on their coat tails. So they ask government to impose higher costs (through the tax and compliance with the tax) on the small businesses to keep them out of the game, and therefore, their margins higher. This, friends, is the absolute definition of CRONY CAPITALISM, an evil that must be rooted out if we are to ever have any hope of being great again.

And one more thing: your graph proves absolutely nothing. Sure, China imports a lot of fake trees into the US, but what is the value of American made fake trees? What is the value of real tree sales? Both of those totals could dwarf your stats, but you've chosen not to show them in order to scaremonger your way along.
Maybe some environment loving entrepreneurial videographers should put a Christmas tree on DVD so people can sock it to both the real and fake tree industries, and ask the government to tax both those industries since his is "greenest" and should be favored?
Or maybe the National Firewood Association can claim a need to tax DVD's depicting fireplaces. Or ask for a $15/month tax to be applied to all landlords who do not install fireplaces in their buildings?
Where does it end in your mind? When is government stepping outside of its boundaries? If a marketing campaign had a majority of NCTA members support, why could they not implement it? Why do they need the government to do it for them?

RO, the government was not intended to enforce the internal rules/regulations of private enterprise. They do have a role in external rules/regulations that affect the general population's welfare, etc. but that does not seem to be the case here.

It might be that my office soccer team would be better off if I played for them but it's my choice on whether or not I play, not my boss's and certainly not the government's.

All for Accuracy

November 29, 2011 9:55 PM

Innocent,

That is not at all what conservatives were saying. I know because I read Addington's article at Heritage as well as other conservatives who piled on. They didn't mention that the idea for the fee originated with the growers, was vetted by the growers, and approved by 70% of the growers. And after claiming to read documents showing drop offs in sales and the numbers of growers, they had the nerve to claim that christmas tree sales were just fine and didn't need any help.

If they really had a problem with the concept of checkoff programs they would have mentioned the ones initiated under Reagan, Bush, Clinton, and Bush.

If they really had a problem with some people using government to "force" compliance with their wishes, then they also better come out against every neighborhood association, town hall meeting, school board, and zoning board in the country. This program operated under the exact same principles as these examples of small-town democracy: present the options, provide time for interested parties to respond, and then go with the majority.

The bottom line is they got caught lying and now you want to claim they were misunderstood. Sadly, their message came through loud and clear: taking a cheap shot at Obama is more important than accurate reporting, and more important than promoting American farms and jobs.

perfect sense, Jb, since the 15 cent per tree tax is sure going to price those fresh trees right out of the market.

FYI, the same thing is already being done, at the behest of producers of

Dates
Grapes

It is too early for me to think about real, genuine, American made, Oops, planted for Christmas tree market, sort of canned for the holidays merchandise.

During the long Thanksgiving weekend, I took time to go in the attic, open boxes which contained everything, fancy to flimsy, fake (made in America) Christmas tree to ornaments, tinsel, angel holding shining star, blinking and not blinking lights, decorated red socks, popcorn packets, needle and thread to string the popcorn, little Santas, big Santas, little reindeers, big reindeers, and reminisced.

Long coveted useless, seasonal articles to be used to herald the joyous season, once in a year. Some of these could be considered as heirlooms, much used, abused, stored and un-stored with tender loving care and handling.

I used to buy real Christmas trees, once. Afterwards, used to plant them in my front, side and backyards. Most survived and have become so huge that I need more real estate. Can't use them as indoor objects they used to be. If I tried to bring in just one indoor, I would have to raise my roof five story-high, demolish one side of the house, bring in heavy duty cranes to do what I could have done by myself.

Keep Christmas spirit by buying cheap (made in China) fake trees, for heaven's sake.

The avg fresh cut tree costs $40. The avg nice pre-lit artificial that you would reuse each yr. is $150-200. For whatever reasons the real tree industry is suffering--not the least is that the fakes now look terrific. But 15 cents per tree would raise $2 million for a unified marketing program. Not ALL tree farmers want to participate, but most (75%) do. So the growers ask the USDA to form a Board and collect the tax/fee. There are many other successful agricultural and ranchers Boards. "Got Milk?". "Pork--It's the other white meat" "The Incredible edible egg!". Those campaigns were very successful for their industries. Cranky outlier and "free-rider" farmers with the help of Libertarian Think Tanks have taken this issue to the Supreme Ct. three times!! 2 out of 3 ruled for the Govt. with the most recent (2005) a victory for the Cattlemen's Association to continue the $1 a head fee per beef cattle. These Ag Boards work and is an example of Govt doing a service for the good of domestic Business. Those are American small farmers in this case.

Contrary to what you are being told by the "Christmas Tree Industry" some of us growers will be forced by our federal government to pay to fund generic promotions of Christmas Trees against our better judgments. Fines and penalties for nonpayment of the Christmas Tree Tax are a minimum of $1,000 to a maximum of $10,000 per violation. Each day constitutes a new violation. What the "Christmas Tree Industry" is not telling you is that the only help from the Federal Government that they truly want in developing a Promotional message for our industry is just what I listed above and that is the force of government to get growers to pay into their program.
I guess I am just a little old fashioned because I still believe that if an industry group would like for me to pay into an advertising campaign, then they should sell me on that campaign instead of using the force of government to make me pay into it. I guess the Country we live in today is much different than it used to be. I can only hope that one of these days soon, enough people will wise up when the government says they are here to help, and freedom loving people will just say No Thank You because we have seen where that has gotten us. One size fits all government programs benefit one group to the detriment of another group and from what I have seen of these programs, I unfortunately will be one of the latter.

I drop a comment each time I like a post on a site or I have something to valuable to contribute to the conversation. It's caused by the sincerness communicated in the article I looked at. And after this post China's Fake-Christmas-Tree Hegemony - BusinessWeek. I was actually moved enough to post a thought :) I actually do have a couple of questions for you if you do not mind. Could it be only me or does it look as if like a few of the comments appear as if they are written by brain dead visitors? :-P And, if you are posting at other places, I'd like to follow everything new you have to post. Would you list all of all your community sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
