Its Green Friday

BOSTON –  The Baker-Polito Administration has declared Friday, November 24, 2017 as “Green Friday” to encourage people across the Commonwealth to visit their local farms and nurseries for Christmas trees, holiday plants, and holiday decorating needs. 


To celebrate “Green Friday,” Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Matthew Beaton and Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources (MDAR) Commissioner John Lebeaux will participate in a Christmas tree cutting ceremony at Riverwind Tree Farm in Lancaster, which grows both native and exotic fir tree varieties.


“After Massachusetts residents enjoy their Thanksgiving and begin preparing for the winter holiday season, we encourage everyone to support the hundreds of family-operated Christmas tree farms and nurseries that contribute to our economy every year,” said Governor Charlie Baker.
