The official blue room tree is an 18 and a half foot douglas fir from Lehighton Pennsylvania. It was grown by the Botek family. The White House will also feature five trees from the Wyckoff family. They won the national Christmas Tree association contest.. But didn't have a tree tall enough for the blue room.
