Congratulations to Bustard's Christmas Trees in Lansdale, PA for supplying the 2015 White House Christmas tree!
In late September, representatives from the White House and National Park Service visited the Pennsylvania Christmas tree farm to select the tree that will be displayed in the White House Blue Room as the official Presidential Christmas tree.
Bustard's Christmas Trees was chosen to provide the official tree by winning first place in the National Christmas Tree Association competition in July. The first place winner each year is selected to provide a tree to the White House, and 2015 marks the 50th anniversary of this tradition.
From Carbon County to DC! This 19ft, 14-yr old Fraser Fir from Bustard's is the OFFICIAL White House Christmas Tree pic.twitter.com/2h6F5lrNUp— Tim Kelchner (@TimKelchner) October 1, 2015
The tree that the White House officials chose from Bustard's tree farm is 19 feet tall, 11 feet wide, and 14 years old! For the past few years, the Blue Room tree has been decorated with ornaments made by children and dedicated to military families, but the theme for 2015 has not been announced yet.
