Northumberland County Tree Farm Provides White House Blue Room Christmas Tree

And he's a Trapper!

On October 15, Pennsylvania’s $28.9 million Christmas tree industry was highlighted when Agriculture Deputy Secretary Fred Strathmeyer joined the National Christmas Tree Association at Mahantongo Valley Farms in Northumberland County where a tree was chosen for the Blue Room in White House.
“Pennsylvania Christmas tree growers have a big impact on the state’s economy,” said Deputy Strathmeyer. “And now, a Pennsylvania tree is making its way to America’s living room.”

With more than 1,400 tree farms in the Commonwealth and nearly 31,000 acres of trees, Pennsylvania ranks third in the nation for Christmas tree production.

As grand champion winner of the National Christmas Tree Contest, Mahantongo Valley Farms owner Larry Snyder had the honor of providing this year’s Blue Room Christmas tree.

Since 1929, the Blue Room tree has been known as the White House’s official tree and is traditionally trimmed by the first lady.
The tree will be cut and transported in November, when Pennsylvania’s tree-buying season is just beginning.

“We’re proud to have a piece of Pennsylvania on display at our nation’s capital through the holidays,” added Strathmeyer. “I hope Pennsylvanians will make the same choice to buy a local, renewable tree this season.”

I am sure it will be well decorated by the classiest and best first lady we had in many years.
