Trees for Troops
In 2005, the National Christmas Tree Association established the Christmas Spirit Foundation to spread the Christmas spirit all year long. Soon after they established the Trees for Troops program which brought free trees to troops in bases around the world. To date, they have given over 193000 trees to troops and their families.
Since 2005 the NC Christmas Tree Association and our member farms have been apart of this amazing event. Last year 800 trees were delivered to Fort Campbell and Fort Bragg. We could not do it without the help of Ashe and Avery County ROTC students, Alleghany 4-H students, Upper Mountain Research Center, and Avery County CooperativeExtension Center.
This year Trees for Troops will be donating its 200000 trees. We are thrilled to be apart of this event and have made it our goal to donate 500 trees during the Christmas Season.
If you are a Christmas Tree farmer and would like to get involved please reach out to us. We would love for you to be apart of this amazing charity.
