Donate a Christmas Tree Online Now for a Military Family this Christmas!
If you don't live near one of our Trees for Troops Weekend locations
to purchase a tree, you can now buy one online! The One Thousand Tree Campaign
is an online program that will run through November 30. Each year, Trees for Troops has to turn down nearly one thousand tree requests from military families across the U.S. because of supply. With the campaign we hope to bridge that gap by letting the public purchase trees online. Each $40 donation to the campaign will provide one farm-grown Christmas Tree to a military family and ensure it gets delivered via FedEx in time for the holidays.

Trees for Troops Weekend is Coming Up - Dec. 4-6, 2015
Over 18,000 Trees Going to Military Installations Across the U.S. starting Dec. 2
Anyone can participate in Trees for Troops by visiting one of the farms or retail lots across the country that signed up to be a Trees for Troops Weekend location this year! Each of these locations will host a FedEx trailer parked at their farm/lot so you can purchase a tree and then place it on the truck to be donated and delivered to a military family at one of our participating bases the following week. Over 5,000 trees are usually purchased and donated during Trees for Troops Weekend! Click here to view the participating locations for 2015
Through the generous donations of Christmas tree growers, retailers, their customers and people just like you, we will be able to deliver over 18,000 farm-grown Christmas trees to military families this year! FedEx Freight provides all of the logistics and trucking of the trees from the farms to the bases. Find out which bases we are partnered with this year by downloading our delivery map and schedule. Are you a military family stationed at one of these bases and are looking for information on how to get a tree? Each base does their event and tree distribution differently so it is best to contact MWR or the Marketing/Sponsorship department at the base for further details.
