Trees for Troops 2021

The Indiana Christmas Tree Growers Association members once again donated trees to be delivered by FedEx to over 75 bases and stations located throughout the United States. ICTGA board member Lance Sambol of Sambol’s Tree Farm served as the Trees for Troops state coordinator for two pickup locations in Indiana. Joe Hensler and Scott Heeren provided a FedEx pickup location at Hensler Nursery near Hamlet which is in the north central part of the state. Rex and Janice Zenor of Piney Acres Farm at Fortville served as the central Indiana area FedEx pickup location.

In addition to ICTGA members donating trees for the program, several tree farms collected donations for the Trees for Troops program. The following ICTGA members donated trees and/or collected money during tree sales for the 2021 program. There are other members that collected money and sent it directly to the Christmas Spirit Foundation so they may not be listed here. The association thanks all its members for supporting the Trees for Troops program in various ways for so many years.
