President Donald Trump and the first lady welcomed this year's White House Christmas tree, a Fraser fir from North Carolina.
The tree arrived by horse carriage Monday to the North Portico of the White House. It was delivered by the Smith family of Mountain Top Fraser Firs, a North Carolina tree grower, according to White House officals.
Once decorated for the holidays, the tree will be displayed in the Blue Room of the White House.
Since 1966, the official White House Christmas tree has been provided by the winners of a national contest.
