Rocco Malanga 

 

To his family, Rocco's passion for Christmas Trees was evident at a very young age.  As a small child, he would beg to go to the "Lot" and wrestle trees that were 3 times his size, the same place his family has been selling Christmas Trees his entire life.  Rocco is the second generation owner of Cedar Grove Christmas Trees.  Relationships he has developed with small, family farms have driven Cedar Grove Christmas Trees' reputation to be synonymous with quality and value.  

Under Rocco's leadership, Cedar Grove Christmas Trees has offered support to local charities, food pantries and The Girl Scouts by donating over 1000 Christmas trees in recent years to these organizations.  
Rocco is a bible student and active in his church, he is married and has two small children, who he hopes will inherit his passion and love for the business he grew up in.
