Nothing Says Christmas Like a Real Tree, For Schools and Troops


This Christmas season, you can purchase a fresh Christmas tree that benefits a local school or even our troops! Since 1987, Reindeer Forest Tree Farms has been raising and selling beautiful, healthy Noble Fir and Douglas Fir Christmas trees. They plant, nurture, select and deliver the highest quality Christmas trees from their 100-acre farm in Oregon. Their trees are typically delivered within 48 hours of being cut. It's best to place your order by Nov. 15.

Reindeer Forest’s service is what keeps its clients loyal and sets it apart from other Christmas tree purveyors. Retail tree lots, chain stores, charities, and schools have selected Reindeer Forest Tree Farms for their holiday sales year-after-year.

Current fundraisers to benefit local schools include Mater Dei High School Football, Corona del Mar High School Basketball, Los Alamitos High School Girls Basketball and Crean Lutheran High School. Or, you can purchase a Christmas tree to be donated to a military family, and the proceeds go to one of these schools.

Trees for Troops. By making a tax-deductible donation, a U.S. Military family from Camp Pendleton will receive a Christmas tree. The best part about this is that a group of students from Crean Lutheran High School follow a Reindeer Forest truck down to Camp Pendleton and hand the trees to the families. It is a wonderfully heartwarming experience and is great to see the interaction between our military service members and the student volunteers. You can help make this happen and provide joyous memories for them through the gift of a real Christmas Tree by visiting, 

CDM Boys Basketball Christmas Tree Fundraiser, or support our troops and their program by purchasing a Christmas Tree online or from any CDM Boys Basketball Player.
