2018 Real Tree & Advocacy Contributions

Protecting and Advocating for the Real Tree Industry


NCTA fills a unique and critical place as the national advocacy organization leading initiatives in public policy/governmental affairs, regulations and fire codes for the real Christmas Tree Industry; a role the Christmas Tree Promotion Board, because of its checkoff funding and USDA oversight, is prohibited from fulfilling. The continued financial support from NCTA members’ investment in Issues Advocacy Sponsorships and from state and regional associations participation in the Tree Industry Partnership (TIP) Program is vital to maintaining NCTA’s ability to conduct this work.
