The Christmas tree industry in Wisconsin existed well before the Wisconsin Christmas Tree Producers Association came into existence. For many years prior to the establishment of the association, Christmas trees came from natural stands of Balsam fir, spruce and pine. With the establishment of large plantations of pine after World War II, a number of people became interested in forming an association for their mutual interests. At a meeting at Bayfield, Wisconsin, on August 6, 1954, the Association was organized. Membership dues were established at $5.00 per year and 73 growers became charter members. The association, over the years, grew to over 400 members.
The initial objectives of the association were research on cultural management of trees, enforcement of licenses and trespass laws, and preparation of newsletters and tree tags. Today, we strive to be a medium for our members and the industry for the exchange of information and ideas to assist in the production of quality Christmas trees.
The mission of the Wisconsin Christmas Tree Producers Association is to promote real Christmas trees, wreaths and greenery through marketing, and education of our members and customers by quality production of real farm fresh and fragrant products while protecting the environment.
