Area tree farm donating Christmas trees for military families

Christmas tree farms are entering their busiest time of year harvesting trees and shipping them to lots across the country.

That includes Northern Family Farms in Jackson County.

The family-owned farm is the biggest Christmas tree farm in Wisconsin and also takes part in the “Trees for Troops” program.

Every year, the farm donates 100 trees that are sent to military bases across the United States and overseas.

“I think it’s an amazing opportunity to give back to the troops every year,” said co-owner Ashley Ahl. “Nothing makes me happier than to know that people will have a real Christmas tree to celebrate with.”

If you’d like to make a donation to the Trees for Troops program yourself, you can do so on their website.
