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.

Attention Members - Important message from the Executive Director

Dear CCTGA Members              November 4, 2015

It's not every day you get the opportunity to gloat about what you do best. But today and for the next 25 days, you, members of CCTGA, will have that chance.

We were approached by WFSB's Channel 3 "Better Connecticut" to partner with them in a daily sweepstakes beginning on Nov. 4 and ending on Dec 11th. During this time each day a name will be picked from the daily entries to receive a $50.00 gift certificate for a fresh CT Grown Christmas tree from any of our members' farms that choose to participate. Winners will be announced each day for 25 days on the "Better Connecticut" show, which airs daily on WFSB, Channel 3 at 3 PM. Along with the winners being announced, the show will feature CT Christmas trees, farms, facts, myths and tips on 2 different occasions throughout the contest. Official rules governed by WFSB will be posted on our website for your review.(In the Member's Only Area)

As this was time sensitive request, the Executive Board of Directors made the decision to participate. We were fortunate to receive a Grant recently for the promotion of CT Grown trees and each member which, with a small added contribution by CCTGA, will allow us to reimburse for any/all gift certificate(s) presented once they are surrendered to me. If any member does not want to participate, please let me know ASAP as we will be providing WFSB with a list of participating farms.

What a great advertising opportunity for our industry. I personally think this is a much needed "shot in the arm" for CCTGA that will go a long way toward promoting the REAL tree in today's market.

Thank you for your attention to this exciting adventure.

Kathy Kogut
Executive Director
