The tree arrived Friday morning via horse-drawn carriage.
This year's tree, a 19-foot Fraser fir, was harvested this month and provided by owners Rusty and Beau Estes from Peak Farms near Jefferson, N.C. Peak Farms was named this year's grand champion by the National Christmas Tree Association, which has been selecting the White House tree since 1966.
