Every year between Thanksgiving and Christmas, The Home Depot sells millions of live Christmas trees to holiday shoppers.

It’s an enormous production, one that involves a lot of cultivation and coordination by The Home Depot’s live goods team. As a leader of that team, Dan Stuppiello is actively involved in the growing of Christmas trees for today, tomorrow and years to come. We’ve asked him here to tell us more about those trees, and the role that sustainability plays in the process.

“I want customers to know that we’re working to make sure that we can live up to their expectations for good quality and good value.”
