A project in Carbon County could help "deck the halls" for some military families here at home and soldiers overseas!

The annual "Trees For Troops" project gets underway this Friday at Yenser's Tree Farm near Lehighton.

Newswatch 16's Ryan Leckey visited Yenser's Tuesday morning.

"Trees For Troops" is part of a national campaign. It takes place at participating tree farms across the country.

According to organizers, each location will have a FedEx trailer parked at its farm.

You can purchase a tree, place it on the truck, and it'll be donated/delivered to a military family at a participating base or overseas the following week.
