FedEx is once again honoring the dedication of America’s servicemen and women by delivering happier holiday memories to military members and their families through the annual Trees for Troops® and Wreaths Across America™ programs. 

Now in its seventh year, Trees for Troops brings together FedEx, the Christmas SPIRIT Foundation and tree farmers across America to transport thousands of real Christmas trees to service members stationed overseas, as well as on military bases in the U.S. 

FedEx will deliver more than 500 fresh-cut Christmas trees to active duty service members overseas and more than 17,000 trees to members of the armed forces and their families stationed at military bases across the United States. FedEx Express air operations will assist with international tree deliveries while the FedEx Freight trucking network delivers trees to more than 60 military bases throughout the United States. 

Wreaths Across America brings together communities to honor and remember the service of veterans during the holiday season. In 2011, more than 400,000 wreaths will be laid at veterans’ headstones in cemeteries in all 50 states. FedEx Ground is one of the largest transportation sponsors of the Wreaths Across America 2011 campaign, providing $100,000 of in-kind shipping for the wreaths.
