Trees for Troops
For many years, Christmas tree growers have been providing free trees for charitable purposes.
In 2005, the National Christmas Tree Association developed the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation as a 501(c)(3) charitable organization to advance the spirit of Christmas. The foundation quickly developed plans for a national program that could unify the individual programs of tree growers and state Christmas tree associations. FedEx became involved as the in-kind sponsor – and the national Trees for Troops program was born.

Trees for Troops provides Real Christmas Trees to armed forces members and their families in the U.S. and stationed overseas. To date, more than 157,000 trees have been donated and provided to troops and military families, and FedEx has provided the in-kind service of shipping these trees while logging more than 573,000 miles.
