Gov. Gretchen Whitmer proclaimed December as Michigan Christmas Tree Month on Thursday, recognizing the vital economic, environmental, and social benefits of Michigan’s Christmas tree industry. Michigan ranks third in the nation for the number of Christmas trees harvested, supplying about three million fresh trees – with an annual net value of $30-$40 million – to the national market each year. There are more than 560 Christmas tree farms on a combined 37,000 acres across the state, ranging from large wholesale farms, to choose and cut farms, to small farms with a few acres selling pre-cut trees.
