Are You Ready For Some Christmas? State Tree Arriving Soon
Are you ready for some Christmas? We're less than three months away. The state of Michigan is making sure you know Christmas is coming, with the announcement of the 2019 official state Christmas tree.
This year's tree is a Yooper, and that's the 23rd time that it has come from the Upper Peninsula. It's also the fourth tree from Dickinson County.
"The spruce, donated by Jordan and Sarah Wolfenberg and their family, will be transported to Lansing to adorn the Capitol grounds for the holiday season Oct. 26." - Michigan Office of Management and Budget release
The release goes on to say "the tree will be harvested Thursday, Oct. 24, and delivered to the Capitol with the help from the Michigan Association of Timbermen and the Great Lakes Timber Professionals Association. The timberman will cut the tree and transport it to Lansing at no cost to the owners or state. At the Capitol, local Boy Scout troops will continue the tradition of untying the tree. The HI-Ball Company of Lansing will provide a crane and crew to hoist the blue spruce into place at the intersection of Capitol and East Michigan avenues."
