WHAT DOES THE ASSOCIATION DO?
The association is a marketing and lobbying organization for Vermont Christmas Tree Growers. The association conducts a very successful marketing effort for its members at a reasonable cost.

WHAT DOES IT COST TO BELONG TO THE ASSOCIATION?
The dues are $100.00 per year plus any marketing or other assessments voted at a properly warned membership meeting. 
(Plus an additional one time fee of $25 if you want to be listed on our website.)

Although the option for a marketing assessment exists we have never voted for one. We have been very successful receiving grants and using dues money to support our efforts.

HOW OFTEN DOES THE ASSOCIATION MEET?
Annual meeting late January or early February. Educational meeting in early April and a farm meeting in August. Special meetings can be called if a reason or occasion arises. The board of directors meet monthly if necessary to take care of business matters.

  1. You must actively grow Christmas trees in Vermont or own land in Vermont on which you intend to grow Christmas trees and brush for the wholesale market.
