Since 2004, we have provided free, farm grown Christmas Trees to members of the armed forces and their families in the U.S. and overseas.
Last year, more than 18,000 trees were delivered by the Trees for Troops program. This is the 11th year of the program delivering trees.
Through the generosity of the Real Christmas Tree farmers, consumers and corporate sponsors, including FedEx, almost 140,000 trees have been donated.
Darling's Tree Farm has been involved with this program from the very beginning and we are thankful to all who contribute to this great cause!
Notes that we have received...
"I am a Staff Sargeant in the Air Force National Guard and I just got married before I was deployed. This is our first Christmas and we are not together. I am sincerely grateful to you for donating a tree for my wife this holiday season. Your tree made our holiday much more special, especially for my wife while we are apart. Thank you very much."
"Thank you for the Christmas tree. It is nice to know that people support us and we are not forgotten, especially at this special time of year. The smell is wonderful and it reminds me of when I was growing up. Your thoughtfulness and care in thinking of us during the holiday season and donating a tree for our family is greatly appreciated."
