More than 700 Christmas trees will be delivered to active duty Fort Benning soldiers and their families by the Trees for Troops program on Dec. 6.
The trees will be distributed on a first come, first served basis beginning at 10:30 a.m. in the parking lot behind the main post car wash.
This is the sixth year that Christmas tree growers and retailers nationwide have donated Christmas Trees for military families.
Approximately 17,000 trees from 29 states are expected to be delivered to military bases in the United States and overseas this year.
Since 2008 consumers have been able to participate in the program by purchasing and donating a tree at nearly 40 farm and retail lot locations during Trees for Troops weekend.
