mooretrees qatar2004The Moores sent the first tree to Qatar in 2004Lansing United Methodist Church teens Aubryn Neubert and Morgan Wilcox were at Moore's Tree Farm this week to pack five Christmas trees that were mailed to US troops in South Korea and Qatar. They stuffed the packages with letters and decorations written and made by other LUMC high school juniors and seniors.

Richard and Kay Moore started selling christmas trees in 1978. Now they sell an average of four to five thousand trees a year, many of which are sold to people who want to cut down their own tree. The coup0le are retired teachers: Richard taught information technology in the hospitality industry at the Hotel School at Cornell, and Kay taught 7th and 8th grade math at Lansing High School. They sent their first Christmas Tree to Nick Graham, their son Jason's former college roommate who had worked on the tree farm during college and was stationed with the Airforce in Qatar. They have been sending trees to troops ever since.
