Wisconsin Tree Selected For White House Christmas Tree
This year’s Christmas at the White House will have a Wisconsin connection.
The Christmas tree at the White House will be from Marquette County in Wisconsin. White House groundskeepers settled on an 18 and a half foot Balsam Fir from Schroeder’s Foreevergreens in Neshkoro.
The tree was selected after the farm’s owners, Tom and Sue Schroeder, won a national contest sponsored by the National Christmas Tree Association. This is the seventh time a tree from Wisconsin has been selected to be the White House Christmas tree since the contest started in 1966.
