Trees for Troops Brings Cheer to Military Families

Ad Feedback

Christmas tree farmers around the U.S. are hoping to brighten up the holidays for troops serving overseas as well as their families here at home.

Through the program Trees for Troops, farmers nationwide donate the Christmas trees. The evergreens are then loaded up and shipped to American military bases in the U.S. and around the world.

At one drop off site in Green Bay, Wisc., farmers donated more than 250 trees.

"The soldiers, they're deployed, whether it's a mother or a father, or both in some cases," said Dan Hanauer Jr. of Hanauer's Tree Farm. "And so here is something we can do to support those families, the people that are left behind."

This is the fifth year for the Trees for Troops program. Organizers expect to deliver more than 18,000 trees this season.
