SMYRNA, NC-- Crab Pot Christmas Trees are one of the most unique holiday decorations one will ever see. They were created by Nicky Harvey and are now manufactured by Fisherman Creations.
 
A Crab Pot Tree is made from green coated crab trap mesh. The trees come in 2 foot, 3 foot, 4 foot 6 foot tall versions and can be used indoors and out.
 
"We are the only ones, or supposed to be, the only ones that make them, cause we have a patent on em," said crab pot trees inventor, Nicky Harvey.
 
Harvey was successful selling 2,000 trees a year, but in 2009 Fisherman Creations took over operations in an attempt to increase sales.
 
"Now, we're doing well over 10,000 trees a year," said Don Acree of fisherman creations.
