Missouri is on the Hunt for the Perfect Christmas Tree to Go Up On the Governor’s Mansion Lawn

(MISSOURINET) –  If you have an evergreen tree that is in its final years, it could go out in a blaze of glory over the holidays. Holly Dentner, with the Missouri Department of Conservation, says the state is looking for a Christmas tree to spruce up with lights and decorations and put on the Governor’s Mansion lawn. The tree, about 30 to 40 feet tall, must be an eastern white pine, Norway spruce, or eastern red cedar, and fully branched on all four sides.

To donate your tree, send pictures from different angles to [email protected] by October 10 – or call the Department of Conservation for more information.
