GACTA is a farmer organization of Christmas tree growers, organized in 1961. Our members invite the public to choose and harvest Christmas trees, direct from the farm. These farms offer a variety of quality Christmas trees, tree stands and attractions. Some farms have gift shops offering unique or hand made items. All of our farms offer a farm experience adults and children will enjoy. The Farm Finder is a map showing the location of Christmas tree farms. This is the easiest way to find a farm near you. Our members also include tree seedling growers, farm equipment and Christmas decoration vendors. They are shown on the Member List, but not on the Farm Finder.
The Georgia Christmas Tree Association is a group of Christmas growers and affiliated support companies. We exist to support each other to exchange ideas on best practices, and to be a common voice for the Christmas tree industry in Georgia.
All of our farms are family-owned. That means that you are often dealing directly with the owners or their family and friends. That means, too, that we have a vested interest in your experience. We realize that you may come to a farm a buy a tree or a wreath, but what you are really after is making memories with your family.
All the farmers take pride in their product and in their farm. They work hard all year planting, growing and shaping trees, mowing grass, and maintaining their equipment, all while looking forward to you showing up. You are our guest!
Trees for Troops
Our Association has been involved with Trees for Troops since 2004 and has averaged over 700 trees per year for the program. Trees for Troops is a program of the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation which provides free, farm-grown Christmas Trees to United States armed forces members in all branches of the military and their families, through donations, sponsorships, grants and the work of many volunteers.
Since 2005, more than 191,000 free, farm-grown Christmas Trees have been provided to troops and military families in the United States and overseas through Trees for Troops. Thousands of trees are donated by American farm families and the public, and FedEx delivers these trees to more than 63 military bases in the U.S. and overseas. FedEx has logged more than 700,000 U.S. miles for the Trees for Troops program.
