The International Christmas Tree Research and Extension Conference(CTRE) is organized under the 2nd Division of the International Union of Forest Research Organizations (IUFRO).
Our goal is to enhance collaborative research and the delivery of research-based information surrounding the sustainable production of conifers used by consumers for the celebration of the Christmas holiday. We provide a meeting venue for Christmas tree researchers, extension professionals and industry to gather from around the world and share their latest work.
Begun in 1987 and held biannually most years, this conference will be the 15th meeting of CTRE. Each conference features research presentations (oral and poster) and a field tour of local Christmas tree production.
Proceedings and newsletters from previous CTRE meetings can be found on the IUFRO site here.
We encourage researchers and extension professionals whose work includes any aspect of Christmas tree production to join us!
