Your organization will “pre-sell” Christmas trees, wreaths, evergreens and Trees and Wreaths for Troops donations during our recommended selling period from October through mid-November. Money will be collected and managed by your group with your profits retained. There is no obligation to order and you only pay for what you have already sold.
Orders MUST be submitted to Wood Mountain no later than November 15th, 2021. Payments are due in full no later than November 17th, 2021 to guarantee your delivery. Products may not be shipped if payment is not received. Any payment arrangements or payment delays must be approved by Wood Mountain management prior to payment due date.
You can earn up to $20,000 or more depending on the program you choose! Each organization can individually determine their profit margin by setting the selling prices based on their geographical area. Typically, your earnings will increase with each consecutive year of participation. Last year our top 50 groups raised an average of $7,200 each.
There are no “up-front” costs to participate. In addition, there are no pre-payment requirements during the program prior to order submittal.
Yes, our “Suggested Retail Price” is typically below retail Christmas tree lot pricing in California. Plus, you can adjust your pricing to fit your demographics and remain competitive.
The trees and greens will be directly delivered to your site with a minimum order of 125 trees. (See the Direct Delivery FAQ below). Upon the arrival of the semi-truck, your group’s volunteers will be responsible for unloading your order.
There is a minimum 125 TREE order requirement for direct delivery to your site. Up to twenty-five (25) “Trees for Troops” donations can count toward the minimum (100+25). Wreaths, greenery and Wreaths for Troops products do not count toward the 125-tree minimum.
For groups who do NOT meet the minimum 125 tree requirement, we do offer an alternative. See the Co-Op and Distribution Lot programs detailed below.
Your products will be combined with other groups near your location that did not meet the minimum. One group will be selected to be the drop site. Once the products are offloaded and the count finalized your group will then take your products back to your location for distribution.
Wood Mountain Distribution Lot Program
Your products will be delivered directly to one of the Wood Mountain Distribution sites located near you. Your full order will be organized by Wood Mountain Reps for pick up. Your group will then pick up the order and take it back to your location for distribution.
Your Wood Mountain Rep will inform you of the options available after your final order is submitted.
Yes, shipping charges are calculated based on a per item basis. Rates are determined on current fuel and transportation costs.
The California Department of Tax and Fee Administration (CDTFA) requires sales tax to be applied to all taxable sales. For organizations outside California please consult your tax advisor.
FOR NON-PROFITS: When working with a fundraising company the CDTFA requires your organization to pay sales tax on goods purchased from Wood Mountain. When submitting the final order, the sales tax applied is based on your local rate and will be shown on your Wood Mountain invoice.
FOR ALL OTHERS: If your organization is not a non-profit, the CDTFA requires you to obtain a seller’s permit and collect and submit sales tax based on your retail price at your local tax rate. Your organization is also required to provide Wood Mountain with a resale certificate. The resale certificate states that you will buy from us sales-tax-free with the intention of collecting sales tax from your customers at the resale amount. After your fundraiser, you are then required to file a sales tax return and submit the sales tax collected.
Please consult your own tax adviser on exemptions and collection of additional sales tax collected over and above the amount paid to Wood Mountain for wholesale products. We strongly advise that you contact the California Department of Tax and Fee Administration directly at 800.400.7115 should you have any questions regarding sales tax.

Our trees and wreaths are “nursery” quality graded and are delivered fresh directly to you from the Pacific Northwest. In addition, the wreaths and greens are all “handcrafted” and of superior quality.
It is much better environmentally to use a natural agricultural crop and recycle it after the holidays. Real Christmas trees are a renewable, recyclable, and natural product that are produced in the Pacific Northwest USA. The trees are grown as crops, just like corn or wheat, and raised on a farm. Once harvested, new seedlings are planted to replace harvested trees. Artificial Christmas trees are a non-renewable, non-biodegradable, plastic, and metal product most often made in overseas factories.
