Bringing Top Industry Speakers and Educators Into the Homes of
North American Christmas Tree Growers
Tatamagouche, Nova Scotia, The Christmas Tree Council of Nova Scotia is proud to present The Balsam Fir Forum, a virtual conference specifically designed for Christmas Tree Growers across North America, with loads of content relevant to anyone involved in farming and forestry. When plans to host a national conference in Tatamagouche this August fell through due to COVID-19, Council seized the opportunity to try something new. Through a virtual platform, we will deliver the same outstanding content from speakers across North America to an even bigger audience of Christmas tree growers from the aspiring to the well-established. Launching on August 21, 2020, the Forum will provide on-demand access to a variety of presentations relevant to growers from the comfort of home. The Balsam Fir Forum has engaged several North American experts and industry leaders including Dr. Jill Sidebottom, Dr. Scott White, Dale Thibodeau and Jay Woodworth along with many other featured speakers. The Balsam Fir Forum will cover current topics that are important to growers today. Integrated Pest Management, Fertility, Succession Planning, and Business Planning are just a few of the many, varied topics that will be on the program. The user-friendly design allows attendees to set their own pace to watch, listen, read,
and review the content for twelve months. Attending The Balsam Fir Forum is easy. Have questions? Reach out to our friendly chat, phone, and email support. Take advantage of Early Bird tickets and get all of the important event updates. To find out more about The Balsam Fir Forum register at
