White House Christmas tree arrives from Wisconsin


UNDATED (WSAU) The first White House Christmas tree in eight years that came from Wisconsin arrived today at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The Forever-greens’ tree farm near Neshkoro provided the 19-foot balsam fir. Michelle Obama, her daughters Sasha and Malia, and the family dog Bo saw the tree come up the White House driveway on a horse-drawn carriage. The Obamas took a good look at it, and then gave it a “thumbs up.”

The tree will be put up in the Blue Room, as the center-piece of the White House holiday decorations. Tom and Sue Schroeder own the Forever-greens’ tree farm – and they were selected after winning both state-and-national contests.

It’s the seventh time Wisconsin has supplied the White House Christmas tree since the national competition began in 1966.
