ODA, OCTA Send Ohio Christmas Trees to Troops Overseas

The trees are being sent to Kuwait

The Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) and Ohio Christmas Tree Association (OCTA) are partnering once again to send American troops stationed in Kuwait 75 Ohio-grown Christmas trees.

Operation Evergreen is an annual event that was held Wednesday at ODA’s Reynoldsburg campus and organized by OCTA.

"Our servicemen and women deserve the best," said ODA Director Brian Baldridge. "Everything our farmers grow is first-rate and that includes Christmas trees. I am proud of the contribution both Ohio growers and ODA are making to ensure military members get a piece of home for the holidays."
