The Canadian Christmas Tree Growers 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.
