MIDDLEBURG – Another Christmas tree from the valley will be on display in the country’s capital this holiday season. Hill View Christmas Tree Farm in Snyder County says it has received the honor of delivering the National Christmas Tree in Washington, DC Owner Darrell Bowersox says the tree is scheduled to go to Washington Friday morning with an escort. Details of departure and the route it will take are still being finalized.
The National Christmas Tree is planted on the north side of the ellipse between the White House and the Washington Monument. It is lit annually by the President to mark the official beginning of the Christmas season in the country’s capital.
In 2019, a Christmas tree from Northumberland County was used in the White House. That tree came from Mahantongo Valley Farms in Pitman.
