Spreading Holiday Cheer - Trees for Troops
The holiday season is really all about giving. It was in that spirit of Christmas that Trees For Troops was started in 2005, to give a little bit of the holidays – in the form of farm fresh Christmas trees – to America’s military service men and women and their families.
Since 2005, thanks to the generous support of people like you and donations from more than 700 Christmas tree farms around the country, Trees for Troops has delivered more than 67,000 Christmas trees to military personnel and their families. Trees have been delivered to members of every branch of the military, on more than 50 military bases, in more than a dozen countries.
The trees are one way to say thank you to these folks who have dedicated themselves to serving the country, and to the military families who are often missing a loved one serving away from home at Christmas.
