Jefferson-based Peak Farms provides official Whtie House Christmas Tree

Peak Farms in the Ashe County town of Jefferson has sent a 19-foot Fraser fir to the White House.

First Lady Michelle Obama will receive the Christmas tree — the seventh White House Christmas tree that has come from Ashe County over the years — on the North Portico of the White House on Friday, Nov. 23.

The Christmas tree will be displayed in the Blue Room throughout the holiday season.

Cool Springs Nursery of Banner Elk is providing a tree for Vice President Joe Biden and his family.
