Christmas in October?

The Citizen Times reports today that The White House Christmas Tree will once again hail from North Carolina.

According to the NC Department of Agriculture, almost 20% of natural Christmas trees in the US are grown here in Western North Carolina, ranking second only to Oregon.

This marks the 11th time that a North Carolina Fraser Fir will grace The White House, and is the second year in a row the honor has been bestowed on our region. The tree was grown in Creston, NC, a bit northeast of Asheville. The tree will be cut on the day after Thanksgiving.

Kudos, to The River Ridge Tree Farm.
