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 MNCTA hosts a semiannual convention, in the Summer and Winter. Each are filled with valuable presentations, roundtables, demos, current trends, etc. Another benefit to attending these conventions is the comradery you'll experience with fellow Christmas tree growers.

The 2017 Winter Convention and Trade Show will take place at DoubleTree by Hilton Bloomington - Minneapolis South, MN on March 9-11, 2017.
