Welcome to the Canadian Christmas Tree Growers Association’s website. We have recently updated this site and included frequently asked questions from consumers, retailers, wholesalers and Choose and Cut operations. They all show interest and pride in Canadian Christmas trees and their production.
The Canadian Christmas Tree Growers Association has been serving its member provincial associations since its foundation in 1971, some 44 years ago, by a group of dedicated growers recognizing the common need to exchange and share ideas and innovations for the benefits of all participants in the industry. At the time, it was necessary to educate consumers and growers about the coming of the plantation grown Christmas trees.
In this updated website, we are now putting the emphasis on the need for communication between consumers, growers, retailers and wholesalers and of course the new trend: the choose and cut operations. The whole idea is to encourage the use of real trees to continue promoting this unique tradition of centering the festivities around a fresh evergreen tree.
We have information for consumers and retailers as well as wholesalers purchasing Canadian Christmas trees, proudly grown in our own communities across Canada.
We have included a lot of new information and over 225 pictures, from all parts of the country, representing the wide range of species and methods growers use to produce Christmas trees for your enjoyment
Have a look at our Christmas Tree Life Cycle page. It explains many of the steps involved in growing Christmas trees.
Look at the important list of growers, retailers and wholesalers indicating their details.
