TCTGA President
Dan Peery
Tanglewood Christmas Trees

Hello and Greetings to all!

We were almost getting through the Pandemic, then the drought hits us. We are learning to be more diligent, and we are definitely building on our character. Thankfully, lately, we have been getting some relief on both aspects.

I would like to encourage all members to take an active part in the field days and our annual membership meeting. The exchange of ideas and information can be extremely beneficial to new members as well as established members for continued business growth and opportunity. We value your input and participation to further the real Christmas Tree experience.

As we get ready for our 2022 season, demand continues to be still higher than supplies of trees available. Drought losses of TCTGA members farms, availability of Precut Trees and inflation on all prices and high transportation cost.

It will be an extremely interesting season with all the unusual business trends and opportunities. Here is to having a wonderful and prosperous Christmas Tree season.

Thanks for your continued support and feedback. Hope to see you soon.
Yours truly,
Dan Peery
