Certified NC Christmas Tree Seed

Year Funded

2023

Amount

$50,000.00

Current efforts are underway at the Upper Mountain Research Station to construct a metal building on a concrete slab that will serve as the main hub to process, store and distribute the most elite Fraser Fir seed in the world directly to the NC Christmas tree industry. These efforts are currently supported through a TTF grant that was awarded to the project team during the 2022 cycle. The funds requested here as part of the 2023 granting cycle are meant to help offset and supplement the rapidly rising costs of inflation and supplement this initial investment.?,?
