Are you a newcomer to global economics? It's simple. It's because the labor costs are dirt cheap in China. I feel the same way about the little painted people from Woodland Scenics. The prices are ridiculous compared to those that you can get from China, which is why I got mine from a China seller on Ebay (as referred to me by Big Ed).
You made the comment that the timberlinescernery trees are too expensive (wow - one
tree for $8.95!, I agree) - well that's because labor costs in the USA are way, way more expensive than China. Why do you think TVs. cell phones, and all manner of every type of consumer good comes from China? It's too bad, but that's the way it is.
