A tree grown in North Carolina will deck the halls of the White House this year.
The 19-foot Fraser fir Peak Farms in Jefferson was picked in early October and was harvested Saturday. Peak Farms is the farm of 2012 National Christmas Tree Association Grand Champion winners Rusty and Beau Estes
The tree will be presented to first lady Michelle Obama on Friday morning in Washington. It will then be displayed in the Blue Room, during the holidays.
Members of the National Christmas Tree Association have presented the official White House Christmas Tree for display in the Blue Room each year since 1966.
Trees from Cool Springs Nursery in Banner Elk were also chosen for the vice president's home.
"This is the first time the White House tree and vice president's tree have come from the same state," said state Agriculture Commissioner Steve Troxler. "It speaks volumes about the quality of trees available in North Carolina."
Troxler said the Tarheel State ranks second in the nation in Christmas tree production.
