N.C. Tree Headed To White House

A huge Fraser Fir from Ashe County in North Carolina is on its way to become the official
Christmas tree of the White House.

Sporting a red, white and blue ribbon with 50 loops for the 50 states, the tree
is 18-and-a-half feet tall by 13-feet wide.

A team of workers wrapped the tree for its 350-mile journey from Laurel
Springs, to the south lawn of the White House.

It took more than a dozen men to lift the tree onto the trailer.

The 2,000 pound tree will be delivered to Washington D.C. Monday when it
will be presented to First Lady Laura Bush.
