"Thank you for the beautiful tree. It made all the difference in the Christmas photos and brought holiday cheer to the HHT 1-108th Christmas party. Thanks for all you do for the troops and their families."

"Thank you for the Christmas tree! This year, my husband and I celebrated our first Christmas together as newlyweds. He waited in line for hours at Scott Air Force Base and received one of the last trees on the lot. When he brought it home, we decorated with the ornaments we had and added the ornaments that a local Girl Scout troop gave John on base. This was each of our first Christmas tree. It is such a blessing to celebrate together this year since he was deployed in Iraq last Christmas. Thank you for adding to the blessing."

How to Get Involved with Trees for Troops
We need your support of Trees for Troops year-round! Through the generosity of consumers like you, as well as the Real Christmas Tree industry and FedEx, Trees for Troops provided 17,051 free, real Christmas Trees to military families and troops in 2013. The demand continues in 2014, as we celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the Trees for Troops program!

Here are some ways you can support Trees for Troops today:

Visit a Participating Location during Trees for Troops Weekend, Dec. 5-7, 2014

Be a part of this wonderful program by visiting one of the farms, retail lots and garden centers across the country that will be participating in Trees for Troops Weekend this year.  Each of these locations will have a FedEx trailer parked at their farm/lot so you can purchase a tree and then place it on the truck to be donated and delivered to a military family at one of our participating bases the following week. A list of participating locations will be posted around the September/October time frame.
