The holiday season began at the Capitol this week with the placement of the holiday tree in the Capitol Rotunda.

Pennsylvania ranks first in the nation in the number of Christmas tree farms and ranks fourth in the nation in the number of Christmas trees cut each year and the acres of production. Pennsylvania has over 2,000 farms covering 44,905 acres that produce 1.7 million cut trees each year. These farms have more than $13.9 million in sales annually.

The Pennsylvania Christmas Tree Growers’ Association donated the 21-foot tall Douglas Fir. The tree will again this year be decorated with 7,000 white mini lights and includes nearly 500 ornaments supplied by 64 senior centers across Pennsylvania.
