While most people haven’t started thinking about Halloween pumpkins, a group of about 80 people gathered Saturday in north Forsyth to talk Christmas trees. But since they were all members of the Georgia Christmas Tree Growers Association, thinking about the evergreens is something they do year round. The Bottoms Christmas Tree Farm, owned by Dennis and Sandra Bottoms, was the site of the annual meeting of the organization, which includes about 100 member farms throughout Georgia, as well as some from neighboring states.
