FRAZEYSBURG - American troops stationed overseas will celebrate the holidays with an Ohio-grown Christmas tree thanks to Operation Evergreen, an annual event of the Ohio
Christmas Tree Association (OCTA).
More than 100 trees were donated by various Ohio Christmas tree growers and inspected by department nursery inspectors before being sent to soldiers serving at Camp Arifjan, Kuwait.
The trees received a phytosanitary certificate for international shipment. In addition to the trees, decorations donated by local schools, churches and veterans' groups, ensured the military units receiving the trees will have all that is needed to celebrate the holidays. 
Donations were received from various organizations and growers to cover shipping charges.
