The Connecticut Christmas Tree Growers Association was organized in 1960 to encourage the development of the Christmas tree industry in the state of Connecticut.

The site is maintained for CCTGA members and for the public who buy "real" trees at Christmas. The site includes information about local tree farms, where to purchase trees, and how to care for them. The site also provides a list of officers, members and membership information.

Attention Real Tree Line Readers

Here are the Online Pesticide Applicator Recertification Courses and Materials Links as indicated in The Real Tree Line Summer addition.
