Based on reports, the 19-foot tall Fraser fir from Peak Farms in Ashe County arrived at the North Portico of the White House by horse-drawn carriage. It will be displayed in the Blue Room of the White House throughout the holiday season.
Moreover, trees from Cool Springs Nursery in Banner Elk, N.C., were chosen for the vice president’s residence.
“This is the first time the White House tree and vice president’s tree have come from the same state. It speaks volumes about the quality of trees available in North Carolina”, North Carolina Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler mentioned in a statement.
According to recent reports, North Carolina ranks second in the nation in Christmas tree production. More than 5 million trees are harvested there annually.
Last year’s White House Christmas tree came from Neshkoro, Wis.
