Three Christmas trees from a family-run farm in Wisconsin are headed for the White House to serve as holiday decorations.
Friends and relatives joined tree-farm operators Jim and Diane Chapman as the trees were prepared for shipment from Silent Night Evergreens in Endeavor.
The family was expected to present a specially selected Fraser fir to First Lady Laura Bush Monday morning. The 18 1/2-foot tree will be carried to the White House in a horse-drawn wagon and will grace the Blue Room. The second tree will stand in the Oval Office, and the third will be the first family’s private tree.
