The National Christmas Tree Association represents growers from 35 states, Canada, Mexico, and several foreign countries. We have been a member for over 15 years. Because of the climate dependencies we primarily rely on our Minnesota association for gaining knowledge in what and how we plant and grow. However, Christmas is Christmas, and there is much to be gained by interacting with people and visiting tree farms all over the country.
In addition to attending many NCTA seminars and conferences over the years, Phil served as the MNCTA representative to the NCTA Board of Directors for eight years. During four of those years he served on the NCTA Executive Committee as Secretary/Treasurer.
