Welcome to the Minnesota Christmas Tree Association

The Minnesota Christmas Tree Association has provided information that will help you locate a farm, find your perfect tree, tell you how to care for it, and assure you that celebrating the holidays with a Real Christmas tree truly benefits the environment.

Find tools for environmental education through our Go Green, Get Real® program, and community events and activities such as the Minnesota State Fair where you can view some of the finest trees and meet local tree growers.

This year, keep the tradition going or start a new family tradition - buy a real Christmas Tree.

Go Green, Get Real!


In 2008, the MN Christmas Tree Association began a marketing campaign entitled, Go Green—Get Real! It is intended to help people better understand the importance of real Christmas trees.  This is not just for adults, in fact, some facets are designed to help educators use the material in classrooms when talking about the environment. 


Partial funding for this project provided through a cooperative agreement with the USDA Risk Management Agency
