Domestic Sales Reports Due February 15
All Christmas tree growers who harvested and sold 500 or more Christmas trees in 2023 are required to complete a Domestic Sales Report Form and submit it, along with payment (15 cents per tree), to the CTPB’s bank lockbox. The official deadline is February 15, however there is a 30-day grace period before late fees and interest charges accrue.
The on-line reporting system has taken longer than expected. It is likely to be available to use during the 30-day grace period timeframe, however growers who do not want to wait are encouraged to file their report with the more traditional method of mailing their written report and payment to the lockbox.
Anyone with questions regarding the report or assessments are encouraged to call the RCTB office at: 800-985-0773. Click HERE for a downloadable Domestic Sales Report Form.
2023 Campaign Highlights
Media Authority – that is the goal for the RCTB; to be the go-to resource with the media on all Christmas tree topics. This past season, we built on the foundation that has been laid in previous years and were satisfied with the results. This work was supported by organic and paid social media outreach, paid search and podcast advertising.
So, how did we do? Click this LINK to view the 7-minute video that provides the topline results. Please watch and enjoy!
