Happy Holidays now — and for future generations!

With each fresh Holiday Evergreen product purchased, Mickman Brothers funds the planting of an evergreen tree in one of our country’s state or national forests. This tree planting program, which was initiated in 2007, has funded the planting of over 600,000 trees in 21 States — all in  honor  of the person receiving each Holiday Evergreen gift.

Conservation Fact

Balsam trees are not cut down to make our holiday products. We use the tips of the branches, giving the tree a 'hair cut'! The trees regenerate and can be used again every 3 years!

Planting Trees is hard work

Planting trees on rocky mountains is hard work!

One must be careful

One must be careful not to plant any seedlings in dry creek beds for fear of a flash flood washing out the young trees!

Although it was very dry

Although it was very dry during the plantings, plentiful Spring rains made for an excellent success rate!
