"I just wanted to thank you for your wonderful organization and the beautiful tree we received from Ft. Eustis, VA. The tree that we got was fresh, gorgeous, huge, and smelled amazing. I had so much fun picking out the tree on post and we got many compliments from friends, family and neighbors. It is definitely the nicest tree my husband and I have ever had together. We are very, very grateful to all of the families who donate trees. Our tree brought us so much happiness."
- Shannon

WE DID IT! 100,000th Tree Delivered to Camp Pendleton

Trees for Troops' 100,000th tree was given to Sgts. Jonathan and Jessica Felix and their two children, at Camp Pendleton on December 9, 2011. This Christmas Tree is even more special as the entire family was home together for Christmas after alternating deployments.

Thank you for helping Trees for Troops provide more than 100,000 Christmas trees to military families since 2005!  We could not have done it without the help of FedEx, Christmas Tree growers, farms and lots; the National Christmas Tree Association, state and regional Christmas Tree associations, and consumers everywhere who made donations, as well as the many volunteers who work in support of the program.
