Nova Scotia Christmas Tree Journal


For the thousands of Nova Scotians involved in the thriving Christmas Tree industry, both the print and online versions of the Journal represent a life line to growers, to opportunities, to research and development, to shared knowledge, to news of their industry.

The Christmas Tree Council of Nova Scotia is the body representing both growers and the industry in Nova Scotia. One way or another, the Council has managed to publish thirty volumes of the Journal, the first issue published in the 1980s. 

Our next publication date: April 2017

DRAFT Front Page for April 2017


New in 2017 is our Journal Sponsorship program. This program matches sponsors to regular features. For example, we will be introducing a regular Heritage piece and a feature called Trade Secrets (where growers get to trade secrets.)

One of many advantages of Sponsorship is the repeat of the Sponsor’s name, logo and messaging on several pages of each issue, both in print and online, as well as on our social media sites. Key features of the Program include:

  • Sponsor’s name and logo placed prominently at the beginning of the respective article (equal to an 1/8 page ad)
  • Sponsor’s name and logo included with any republication of the article (e.g. on iloverealtrees.comctcns.comTwitterFacebook)
  • Sponsor’s name mentioned under Journal details on p. 3 of the Journal
  • Sponsor’s name and logo included on our Classified pages under Services, for example
  • Sponsor recognized on social media platforms
  • Sponsor given 10% off one Ad per issue (1/4, 1/2, Full.)

To celebrate the launch of the Journal Sponsorship Program, a locked-in, introductory rate is available to advertisers who purchase at least one advertisement (1/2 page and up) in the April 2017 issue and the two following. Three issues are published per calendar year (April 2017, September 2017, January 2018.) 


If Sponsorship is not yet in your sights, we appreciate your consideration and invite you, in the meantime, to review the Journal’s excellent advertising rates. As always, if we can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact us. We look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you.
