MADISON – Governor Scott Walker announced today the selection and harvest of the 2018 State Capitol Christmas Tree.  The balsam fir, which measures between 35 and 40 feet, was donated by Don and Mary Miller and harvested earlier this month in Plainfield.

“Thank you to Don and Mary Miller for donating this year’s Capitol Christmas Tree. We are inviting elementary school students from across the state to send ornaments showcasing America’s Dairyland as the theme,” Governor Walker said. “We look forward to celebrating Wisconsin’s dairy industry during the wonderful Christmas season.”

The 2018 State Capitol Christmas Tree was coordinated by the Great Lakes Timber Professionals Association and arrived earlier this month at the East Washington entrance of the Wisconsin State Capitol. It is scheduled to be moved from its current location at the East Washington entrance of the Wisconsin State Capitol on Monday, November 26, with a lighting ceremony planned for Tuesday, December 4.
