The men, women and families in Nova Scotia who grow Christmas trees welcome you to our web site. We hope you enjoy the site. Discover the beauty and warmth of using Real Trees and greenery. You will find that we are a very positive choice for the environment. Our growers do care for their land, their soils, their trees, and their customers. Our land is always stocked with healthy, rapidly growing trees and their companion plants, so each acre removes carbon and produces enough oxygen for 18 or more people. Please explore and discover where you might buy your fresh Nova Scotia tree. Read about the exciting things we are doing to improve our growing techniques and tree quality. Take in our history and culture.

We Have Moved!
The Christmas Tree Council of Nova Scotia has undergone significant realignment this fall in an effort to improve services for our growers. Our office services will now be supplied by the staff of the Nova Scotia Federation of Agriculture. The office is now in Bible Hill, in the Annapolis Building of Perennia Innovation Park. This new arrangement offers full week service, a central location in the Province, and immediate access to personnel who are also familiar with the suite of agriculture programs and information available to farmers – we are now an agricultural commodity. So do not be startled when you phone the office number and receive the warm Federation of Agriculture greeting, we are all farmers.
In addition to the change of office services, Council has also added new personnel. We are extremely fortunate to have the services of Angus Bonnyman as our new Executive Director and Annette Bourgeois-Bent as the new Journal Editor. Both replace Matthew Wright, who “slides laterally” to take on the Industry Coordinator role for the industry, a position funded for two years by the Nova Scotia Department of Natural Resources in an effort to transition the industry from the services we had received from the Department Christmas tree specialists. Angus and Annette both bring specific abilities to Council which will augment and improve our ability to support our growers and exporters. Visit our “Contact Us” page for our new listings.
