ODA, OCTA Send Ohio Christmas Trees to Overseas Troops

Operation Evergreen is an annual event

The Ohio Department of Agriculture (ODA) and Ohio Christmas Tree Association (OCTA) are partnering once again to send American troops stationed throughout the world Ohio-grown Christmas trees.

Operation Evergreen is an annual event that was held Nov. 15 at ODA’s Reynoldsburg campus and organized by OCTA.

“Sending our servicemen and women a piece of home during the holidays while they are serving our country overseas is one small way we can show our deep appreciation for the sacrifices they make on our behalf,” said ODA Director Dorothy Pelanda. “The Ohio Department of Agriculture is proud to once again be a partner on this special project.”
