Christmas trees collected for troops overseas

Posted:

GREEN BAY (WKOW) -- Tree farmers in Wisconsin are spreading holiday cheer to U.S. forces overseas.

They packed up Christmas trees Monday outside Lambeau Field. It's part of the "Trees for Troops" program.

The evergreens will be sent to military bases overseas and to families of service members who are serving abroad.

Organizers of the program hope to donate more than 16,000 trees this year.
