Here's another example of how we Americans show support for our military personnel and their families.

Sugergrove Tree Farm at 1619 Township Road 1455, off of U.S. 42 in Ashland, is participating in the Trees for Troops effort again this year, to send 100 Christmas trees to an Air Force base in Florida.

Owner Blake Rafeld says he's been involved in this effort for six years, with more than 100,000 trees sent to military families nationally.  15,000 to 17,000 trees will be shipped nationally this year. 

Rafeld says doing this boosts his holiday spirit, and he says customers can help by in effect buying a tree for $25, with $5 going to the Christmas Spirit Foundation with works with Fed-Ex on shipping the trees. 

Sugargrove Tree Farm offers customers the opportunity to ride a horse or tractor-pulled wagon into the large field, and select and cut down their own Christmas tree.
