Atlantic Canada Christmas tree growers are asking for Help.

Christmas tree growers in Atlantic Canada are asking for help. They say they need federal help if their industry is to remain viable.
They're seeking more than three million dollars to help with research and technology.
Matthew Wright of the Christmas Tree Council of Nova Scotia says most of the money would be used to help improve the quality of the trees.
The industry is worth 30 million dollars in Nova Scotia and more than 100 million in the Atlantic region.
