North Carolina Christmas Tree Arrives at the White House

WASHINGTON (Gray DC) – It’s not even Thanksgiving, but the White House is already putting up its Christmas tree. On Monday, First Lady Dr. Jill Biden this year’s tree at the White House.

“It’s beautiful, it’s even magnificent,” Biden told reporters.

This year’s tree is a Fraser Fir from Peak Farms in North Carolina.

Russell Estes, the ranch owner, is no stranger to seeing his Christmas trees in Washington. His ranch has served White House Christmas trees under the Bush administration, the Obama administration and now the Biden administration.

Estes said, “A special day for Peak Farms and the Estes family and meet the First Lady and gift her a beautiful 18 and half foot Fraser Fir.”

Estes says much of the success lies on the Fraser Fir itself. He said, “We have the Frazier spruce trees that are native to North Carolina. It’s the Cadillac under the Christmas trees.”

This is the thirteenth official Christmas tree of the North Carolina White House.

During the Trump administration, a Peak Farms tree was also selected for the residence of former Vice President Mike Pence.
