New Jersey Christmas Trees Heading to The White House

“These are the most perfectly shaped trees I’ve seen in a long time,” said White House Chief Usher Angella Reid as she searched for Christmas trees today at Wyckoff’s Christmas Tree Farm in Warren County.
At the White House, it’s going to be a Very Jersey Christmas.
For the first time, the White House Christmas trees have been selected from a New Jersey farm.
Four Douglas firs, between 9 and 10 feet tall, were picked today from Wyckoff’s, a 170-acre farm now being run by the family’s seventh generation in White Township.
