Trees for Troops

Daniken Tree Farm is part of a national effort called Trees for Troops which will provide more than 17,000 Real Christmas Trees to military families across the United States and overseas.

Since 2005 Christmas Tree farmers and retailers have donated their own trees for the Trees for Troops program. The Christmas SPIRIT Foundation (CSF), the non-profit that implements Trees for Troops, received many requests from the public on how they could help. This year, consumers will have the opportunity to purchase a tree at Daniken Tree Farm that will be delivered to a military family at Scott AFB, IL. Consumers can come during Trees for Troops Weekend, Friday, Dec. 1 - Sunday, Dec. 3, to purchase a tree for a military family.

Trees for Troops began in 2005 when FedEx, who donates the shipping of the trees, and the CSF provided 4,300 Real Christmas Trees to military families at five bases in the U.S. and overseas. In 2016 over 17,000 military families more than 60 bases in the U.S. and overseas received a tree. Since 2005, CSF and FedEx have delivered over 193,000 Real Christmas Trees. This year, CSF and FedEx with the help of consumers across the country, plan to deliver another 18,000 Christmas Trees to military families.
