Checkoff Study Group Meets

The Checkoff Study Group met in St. Louis on April 14-15. The group discussed what they would like to see the Christmas Tree Industry look like five years from now and ways to make that happen.

They reviewed USDA requirements for a checkoff program, disscussed some options, and discussed ways of engaging the industry in the decision-making process. Ideas include:
  • Making sure people know about and visit this web site
  • Using an electronic survey to gather opinions about some issues
  • Having sessions (presentations and opportunity for feedback) at industry meetings

If you have questions or suggestions, please e-mail them to
