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 benefits the environment.
While we focus primarily on the Christmas tree, we have also included 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, meet growers, and maybe get your picture on our website.
This year, keep the tradition going or start a new family tradition - buy a real Christmas Tree.
