First A Bit Of News
Joan shares that her brother has supplied trees
to various White House events at least as far back as the Reagans.
For those of you who are interested, my brother's tree farm was selected to supply the 2014 Christmas tree to Vice-President Biden. Also, some of the White House staff went to their farm in early October to flag some trees for the White House. I’m very proud of my brother, as he has spent his whole adult life working with trees. For them to win reserve champion is really nice.
