PHOTOS: Operation Evergreen
Everyone likes a touch of home for the holidays, especially if home is halfway around the world. For the last 18 years, the Ohio Christmas Tree Association has sponsored Operation Evergreen, which works to ensure military troops stationed overseas get that touch of home. As part of Operation Evergreen troops receive trees donated by Christmas tree growers from throughout Ohio. This year over 100 trees are being shipped to troops in Kuwait. The trees are first inspected for overseas shipping by ODA nursery inspectors to ensure they are free from any pests and disease. The following are some photos of Operation Evergreen in action at ODA on November 13th.
