Why join SCTA?
Together we share the goal of promoting choose and cut farms and Southern grown Christmas trees. Sharing ideas help us improve our operations and expand markets. Working cooperatively with the Extension Services of Louisiana State University, Mississippi State University, and Auburn University, SCTA provides you with an excellent source of information about the real tree industry from planning the farm to sale.
We encourage all who are considering planting Christmas trees, new and experienced growers, suppliers, and anyone interested in the industry to join the SCTA to learn from each other and facilitate growth of Christmas tree farming. SCTA gladly welcomes growers and non-growers from outside our Alabama-Louisiana-Mississippi region.
