Mickman Brothers Conservation Efforts. Even as young boys, John & Chris, along with our other brothers and father, planted tens of thousands of trees each year – primarily for use as Christmas Trees. Many of these trees serve their communities today as mature forests for both people and creatures to enjoy.
We have continued to be engaged in the conservation efforts, and Mickman Brothers has been honored to be recognized for these efforts.
When you choose Mickman Brothers for your Christmas Wreath Fundraiser, not only are you choosing a fundraiser that will ‘maximize your earnings while minimizing your effort’ – you are also supporting a program to assist in reforesting our country!

We have funded the planting of over 250,000 seedlings in 19 states in our nation’s forests.
Some plantings are done by hand, and some by machine.

Planting trees on rocky mountains is hard work!
One must be careful not to plant any seedlings in dry creek beds for fear of a flash flood washing out the young trees!
Although it was very dry during the plantings, plentiful Spring rains made for an excellent success rate!

Holiday Gift Lists
The Mickman Brothers wreath fundraiser was a huge success and we raised over $1,000! That money allowed the theatre booster club to award two $500 college scholarships to two very deserving senior theatre students.
We are so excited about all the blessings that our theatre group has had and so grateful for the opportunities that the Mickman Brothers fundraisers have brought us.
Thank you so much!
