Capitol Christmas Tree

The smell of cedar is filling the state capitol tonight. That's because a Christmas tree is sitting in the entrance way to the governor’s office.

The tree was donate by the Camacho family and presented by Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam. It's a red cedar grown in Florida.

Putnam says thousands of Florida trees are sold every holiday season. "About 14-thousand Florida Christmas trees will be sold. Millions more will be bought for homes across the country, but about 14-thousand of those will be Florida grown Christmas Trees.”

Besides the tree, the capitol is also festooned with a Menorah in celebration of Hanukkah.
