Join Us in Making the Industry Stronger

If you are serious about making your Christmas Tree business both fun and profitable, you should be a member of BOTH the National Christmas Tree Association and your state/regional Christmas Tree association.

Key Reasons to Join NCTA

  1. To promote the traditions and memories of celebrating Christmas with a Real Tree.
  2. To protect and grow your business. NCTA works to stop legislation and regulations that are negative to you and others growing, wholesaling and retailing Real Christmas Trees and to support beneficial legislation and regulations.
  3. To be part of a community of Christmas Tree professionals and share the knowledge and experiences of thousands who share your concerns, questions and needs.

Membership of Your Choice

NCTA recognizes that not all Christmas Tree professionals' needs are alike ... that different segments of the community have different needs ... that some services appeal to some members and not to others. NCTA members receive a variety of benefits. Membership categories allow you to purchase the benefit package that works for you. If you are not currently a Premier member, consider giving yourself an upgrade to receive additional benefits.

NCTA Membership Categories

Premier Membership – For Christmas Tree professionals interested in expanded services and benefits focused on their specific section(s) of the industry. The Premier Sections are:
  • Choose & Cut – for persons or corporations that produce Christmas Trees and retail them from the farm on which they are grown.
  • Commercial Retailer – for persons or corporations involved in the retail sale of cut Christmas Trees through one or more outlets.
  • Major Grower – for persons or corporations involved in the production and sale of 25,000 or more Christmas Trees annually.
  • Wholesaler/Grower – for persons or corporations involved in the growing and/or selling of Christmas Trees to retailers on behalf of growers.
General Membership – For those involved in the Real Christmas Tree industry who are interested in the basic benefits and services of the organization.

Which Level Do I Choose? General Member? Premier Member?

It depends on your needs and interests. Dues for Premier Members are higher because, in addition to the specific information for the section of your choice (Choose & Cut, Commercial Retailer, Major Grower or Wholesale Grower), Premier Membership includes many of the benefits that are optional for a General Member. So, if you want those services, it will be cheaper for you to join as a Premier Member.
