The Christmas SPIRIT Foundation started Trees for Troops in 2005, joined forces with FedEx, and has since delivered more than 150,000 Christmas trees to military families. For the 2016 holiday season, we’re taking you to Minter’s Farm, one of over 100 farms participating in the program, to see where the trees come from and what goes into getting them ready for our service men and women.

Trees for Troops can be supported by donating to the program or purchasing live trees at one.

For more information, visit http://about.van.fedex.com/newsroom/global-english/ and www.treesfortroops.org. To send support to troops deployed this holiday season, visit www.uso.org/connects.
