Lots of people make TOLCTC happen.
TOLCTC is the product of thousands of peoples time and effort. Thank you all. The backbone of what we do are the folks who get their Christmas trees from us. It's an honor to serve you. The people who buy and plant our trees, buyer/planters, are tree people we are privileged to meet. The media and people at public and nonprofit environmental groups are an unbelievable part of the experience here at TOLCTC. The growers of our trees are nice country folk. We'd like to thank the good folks at; Kinkos, Zipcar, the truck place, the nice folks at the bank, the customer service people on the phone from the website company... A few years we ran on coffee so much we thought of asking the local coffee shop to sponsor us! The best part of the job is going to the tree growers in the country; talking to cows, goin' to the country store, pickin berries and tagging trees on one of those perfect Autumn days. We select trees like Juan Valdez from Folgers selects individual coffee beans. From Philidelphias sub shop in Sellwood to the mango margaritas in Hillsboro, from Springwater road in Estacada to the most Christmassiest house on our route, we salute you all. Together we are pioneering a 21st century tradition.
Our mission: TOLCTC works to promote Natural Christmas trees while being the best provider of living Christmas trees, thereby increasing the popularity of the tradition of celebrating with natural trees indoors, while lowering the price of quality conifer trees to planters- preferably local, publicly owned ones. (In other words, turn Christmas into a tree planting Holiday.)
Our dream is for Oregon to become known with yet another environmental innovation. We like to think TOLCTC can inspire folks of all ages to think about business working for the environment. We prove millions of trees each year can be planted because of Christmas, isn't that something?
May the great SpirIT that is called many names bless us- everything.
