Depending on the year and who is counting, Christmas trees ranks as Oregon’s fifth largest agricultural crop by sales. With around 63,000 acres in Christmas tree production, Oregon is the number one producer in the nation. In the last National Agricultural Statics Survey in 2005, growers shipped 6.9 million trees to consumers across the US and the world. The largest importer, California, received 47% of these trees and 13 % were shipped to Mexico.
