USAgNet - 06/14/2019
Christmas tree producers and importers recently voted to continue their federal research and promotion program.
In the referendum held April 22 through May 17, 55 percent of Christmas tree producers and importers who voted were in favor of continuing the program. Christmas tree producers and importers who were subject to assessments during the period of Sept. 1,
2018 through March 15 were eligible to participate in the referendum.
The Christmas tree research and promotion program was developed to strengthen the position of Christmas trees in the marketplace, to maintain and expand markets for Christmas trees and to carry out programs, plans, and projects designed to provide
maximum benefits to the Christmas tree industry within the United States.
The Christmas Tree Promotion Board has administered the program since 2015.
