Trees for Troops by the Numbers:

Since 2005, more than 157,000 free, farm‐grown Christmas Trees have been provided to troops and military families in the United States and overseas through Trees for Troops. Thousands of trees are donated by American farm families and the public, and FedEx delivers these trees to more than 65 military bases in the U.S. and overseas. FedEx has logged more than 419,000 U.S. miles for the Trees for Troops program.

The program reaches those serving in the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines, Coast Guard and National Guard.

Christmas Tree Farmers and FedEx are donating trees and transportation to say "Thank You" to our troops and to make their holidays a little brighter.

This year, Trees for Troops provided 18,032 real Christmas Trees to military families and troops, bringing the total since the inception of the program nine years ago by the Christmas Spirit Foundation to more than 157,000 trees. This year's trees were delivered by FedEx to 60+ military bases in the U.S. and Middle East, covering every branch of the armed services.

2015 was another fantastic year for Trees for Troops! Generous partners, growers and donors continue to support this program in a BIG way! For the total number of trees donated, 2015 was the third biggest year ever! The Christmas Spirit Foundation received "tons of thank you notes, emails and photos from those who received trees, and we feel blessed to have been part of creating a memorable Christmas for so many troops and military families."

Thank you to all of our generous donors who have helped to make this program a success year after year.

Come check out Big John's Christmas Trees in action at the Atlanta History Center's Candlelight Nights, an annual event that now takes guests "through a historic walkthrough of Christmas as it was experienced in the Atlanta region from the 1830s into the present day." Dates are Dec 9th and 16th, from 5:30 to 9:30 PM.
