White House Christmas Tree Arrives

Tree Picked In Carbon County

The White House received a special delivery today courtesy of a Carbon County family.

Chris Botek and his family delivered the official White House Christmas Tree to the first lady and her daughters this afternoon.

The 19-and-a-half foot Douglas Fir was found at the Crystal Spring Tree Farm II in Lehighton.

Botek says presenting the tree to the first family was a great honor.

''It doesn't get any bigger than this for us as Christmas tree growers. This is the epitome of our business,'' he said.

This isn't the Botek family's first claim to fame. Chris Botek's parents provided the White House Christmas Tree back in 2006.
