We bring members together for their mutual benefit. Members share common problems and are motivated to solve them through the exchange of experiences and cooperative efforts. Information is also shared among members on new innovations and activities related to production and marketing of high quality Christmas trees and associated products.
In a number of ways we promote the Christmas Tree Industry in Virginia. As an association we strive to increase the demand for all members’ trees by creating “brand name awareness” among the public for the Virginia Christmas Tree (Experience a Real Christmas Tree)”. We also strive to improve each member’s individual marketing opportunities through a variety of programs and training tools. We compile and distribute to the media each year, a list of member choose & cut and wholesale tree farms and what products they offer.
Marketing opportunities are made available as follows:
1. Choose & Cut Bulletins
2. Inclusion in the Seller’s List
3. Inclusion in the Buyer’s List
4. Exclusive discounts on websites.
