Welcome to the Minnesota Christmas Tree Association

The Minnesota Christmas Tree Association has provided information that will help you locate a farm, find your perfect tree, tell you how to care for it, and assure you that celebrating the holidays with a real Christmas tree truly benefits the environment.

Find tools for environmental education through our Go Green, Get Real® program, and community events and activities such as the Minnesota State Fair, where you can view some of the finest trees and meet local tree growers.

This year, keep the tradition going or start a new family tradition—buy a real Christmas Tree.

The 2017 Summer Convention will be held on June 23 & 24at Cornerstone Pines (a choose & cut farm)in Grey Eagle MN.

Cornerstone currently has 16 varieties of trees growing. Come and learn about planting, our choose and cut operation, evergreen creation, gift shop, exotics, cross checking fields, walk-in cooler for seedlings, basil pruner demos, herbicide options, why field slope matters, drone demo, and more and where the MNCTA fits in all of this. There will be food for Exhibitors on Thursday night after setup and a BBQ rib feed on Friday night. Cornerstone will be celebrating 10 years of selling Christmas Trees this coming season so we are celebrating with some music and entertainment following the rib feed. On Friday and Saturday there will be organized activities for the kids so bring them with and have a mini vacation with the family. You should have received your registration materials by now. If not, or you have questions, please call Jan (320-743-3327) or Cornerstone Piines (320-732-3299).
