A spruce tree from Stephenson, in Menominee County in the Upper Peninsula will travel south to Lansing this month to become Michigan’s 32nd official Christmas tree.
The tree, which was chosen by staff from the Michigan Department of Technology, Management and Budget, is expected to arrive at the Capitol Saturday, October 28th.
The tree, which is just over 60 feet tall, is being donated by William Winter and his grandson Alex Stevens. This marks the 23rd time the official tree has been selected from the U.P.
The tree lighting will take place Friday, November 17th, as part of the Silver Bells in the City celebration.
