Christmas Tree Growers Assoc. Statement on ‘Christmas Tree Tax’
In response to the false reports being generated by the right wing noise machine the National Christmas Tree Association has issued the following statement:
The National Christmas Tree Association is pleased that the USDA has announced a final rule on the creation of a Christmas Tree Promotion, Research and Information Order, commonly known as a ‘Checkoff.’
Help Us Donate the 100,000th Tree!
Trees for Troops® is a program of the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation (CSF). Since the program’s inception in 2005, Christmas Tree growers from across the U.S. have generously supported military families by providing 84,000 fresh cut Christmas Trees.
For the past several years FedEx has helped to deliver, on average, 17,000 Real Christmas Trees each year to 60+ military bases throughout the U.S. and overseas. This year, our goal is to reach 100,000 Christmas Trees delivered since 2005. But in order to do this, we need your help. There are a number of ways you can help or get involved!
Once again Republicans and conservatives are creating controversy where there is none. In this case they are harming the Christmas tree industry and hampering their efforts to increase the sales of natural Christmas tree sales during the holiday season.
