The Canadian Christmas Trees Association

Canadian Christmas trees provide real jobs for Canadians, from the growers to the farm hands as well as in related industries such as transportation, equipment supply and retail sales.

Why Natural Canadian Christmas Trees?

In Canada, over 28,315 hectares (69,968acres) were dedicated to Christmas tree production in 2011. An acre of Christmas trees produces enough oxygen for 18 people.

Buy Local, Buy Real!

Canadian Christmas tree growers put in the same effort and values, if not more, in preparing the majestic natural trees for your home each year.

Speciality

Canadian Christmas trees are grown in a non-polluted cold winter environment. These conditions allow real trees to flourish, bringing warmth and beauty to your home for Christmas.

The Canadian Christmas Trees Association (CCTA) is the umbrella group of Canada’s provincial Christmas tree associations. For more information contact the CCTGA Executive Director info@canadianchristmastrees.ca

Why Buy Canadian Christmas Trees?

The Canadian Christmas tree tradition is now in its third century of popularity!

Canadian trees are typically pruned annually, holding back the upward growth and making the trees branch out. Annual shearing give our Christmas trees the bushy appearance that distinguishes premium Canadian Christmas trees. Choosing a real Canadian-grown tree is a cherished tradition for millions of people around the world. People with a real Christmas trees in their home consider their tree the single most important item of the Christmas season.

Many vividly remember going out to cut the family Christmas tree in nearby forests when they were younger. These memories: choosing the perfect tree, bringing it home, decorating it and enjoying it during the Christmas celebrations, are long-lasting and greatly cherished.

The fragrance that Canadian Christmas trees bring to a home cannot be duplicated by artificial trees.

We can still enjoy this tradition thanks to the “choose and cut” Christmas tree farms located across our great country. When they are on the farms, families not only choose and cut their own tree, but they can also

  • Have fun on hay rides through the plantation
  • Enjoy hot chocolate
  • Purchase a wreath for decorating the house.

Buy Local , Buy Real

Canadian Christmas trees provide real jobs for Canadians, from the growers to the farm hands as well as in related industries such as transportation, equipment supply and retail sales.

In Canada, there are currently 33 500 hectares (82 700 acres) of land used for growing Christmas trees. Not only does this provide habitat for birds and other wildlife species, but it also provides lots of oxygen.

As the trees are harvested, new ones are already being grown in the transplant beds to take their place in the plantation

It is generally agreed that the use of an evergreen tree as part of the Christian Christmas celebration started 400 years ago in Germany and spread to most of Northern Europe by the 19th century.

Canada was first introduced to the Christmas tree in 1781 in Sorel, Quebec, by a German immigrant, Baron Friederick von Riedesel. The Baron’s tree was a balsam fir cut from the dense forests of Quebec and was decorated with myriad white candles (for safety reasons, we do not recommend the use of candles today).

While in the 1950s most trees harvested in Canada were grown in forest settings, today 98% of the Canadian production comes from Christmas tree farms.

In the early 17th century Germany, wafer thin strips of silver were used to decorate Christmas trees.

Thus began the tradition of decorating with tinsel.

Considering the high value of gold and silver throughout history, this decorating tradition shows how much value was placed in decorating those early Christmas trees.

Canadian Christmas tree growers put in the same effort and values, if not more, in preparing the majestic natural trees for your home each year.
