The Maine Christmas Tree Association (MCTA) is a non-profit organization comprised of family farms that produce real Christmas trees and wreath products for retail, wholesale, mail order, or choose'n cut during the Christmas season. Producers may specialize or offer a combination of mail order, retail, choose'n cut or wholesale production of tree and wreath products.
The purpose of MCTA since it was incorporated in 1962 has been to promote real Christmas trees and share information about fresh Maine Christmas trees and wreath products with its members. This information includes the latest techniques in growing quality trees and wreath products to the care and recycling of Christmas trees.
As a member you receive the MCTA newsletter as well as a national Christmas tree magazine, which keeps you informed on the industry improving real Christmas trees for the consumer. Above all the MCTA promotes the use of real Maine Christmas trees every year for the Christmas season.
