Christmas trees head to Mo. governor's mansion

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (AP) - It soon will look a lot more like the holidays at the governor's mansion.

The Christmas trees for the inside and outside of the mansion are arriving Monday.

The outside tree is a 30-foot blue spruce that was donated from the yard of Jose and Floetta Carrera of St. Peters.

Inside, the grand staircase will feature a gold- and burgundy-clad eastern white pine from Tannenbaum Tree Farm in Armstrong. Pea Ridge Nursery, near Hermann, is supplying trees for the parlor and library. The two parlor trees will feature a Victorian theme, and two in the library will have a musical theme.

A tree-lighting ceremony is planned for next Friday. Visitors also will have the opportunity to see the indoor Christmas trees during tours given that Friday and the following day.
