The 2017 annual meeting will be held August 4th, 5th & 6th in Valley, Alabama. This year, the meeting will be a joint effort with SCTA and the Georgia Christmas Tree Association. Both associations are excited to hold a joint meeting to share experiences, learn from others and strengthen farming bonds enabling our clients the most satisfying experiences possible. Please be patient, plans are yet to be finalized; mark the dates. The SCTA board will meet Friday evening after a meal together. The conference, exhibition, tree competition, lunch, dinner and auction will be Saturday at the Valley Community Center. Sunday, the farm tour will be at Wadsworth Christmas Tree Farm near Wetumpka, Alabama. The SCTA/MSU Christmas Tree Growers Workshop was held Saturday April 22, 2017 at Rosebud Christmas Trees near Walnut Grove, Mississippi. The workshop was a great success thanks to the hosts and planners. Stay tuned for more events serving Southern Christmas tree growers.
Choose-and-cut Christmas trees are the freshest of fresh trees!
Choosing and cutting your own Christmas tree is a wonderful outing to begin your Christmas season. Bring your family and friends to experience the fun and excitement of a working farm where you can find your perfect tree, and enjoy pumpkin patches, hay rides, wreaths, gift shops, farm animals, school tours, breathe some fresh air, and many other offerings.
Bring home a healthy, fresh grown Christmas tree from a local farm.
Our proud members invite you to explore our website, call or e-mail, check us out on the web, Facebook or other social media but most encouragingly come on out and visit the farm. We are confident you will return!
Real trees make scents!
If you are considering starting your own Christmas tree farm, full-time or as a hobby, it will be rewarding to see your hard work come to life. As with any farming endeavor, Christmas tree farming requires smart planning, efficient management, a dedicated application of information, determination and good old work. There is no better organization than the Southern Christmas Tree Association to become a member of when considering such an operation, implementing farming practices or increasing your knowledge base of this rewarding industry. Sharing experience counts at SCTA.
We believe in creating memories that will last a lifetime.
