The Connecticut Christmas Tree Growers Association was organized in 1960 to encourage the development of the Christmas tree industry in the state of Connecticut.
The site is maintained for CCTGA members and for the public who buy "real" trees at Christmas. The site includes information about local tree farms, where to purchase trees, and how to care for them. The site also provides a list of officers, members and membership information.
To participants of the 2013 Christmas tree survey for longhorned beetles,
We just received word from Rose Hiskes and Katherine Dugas at The Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station that they completed the final screening of the insects collected during this summer’s Christmas tree survey in eastern Connecticut. The results were negative – none of the target exotic longhorned beetle species were found.
We will be preparing a final summary report near the end of the year and will share this with you as well.
We greatly appreciate the assistance and cooperation of the Christmas tree growers who kindly let us conduct the longhorned beetle survey on their farms at 25 locations in eastern Connecticut. We plan to conduct a similar survey during 2014 on 25 Christmas tree farms in the 4 western Connecticut counties.
