The state Christmas tree is being delivered to the Alabama Capitol.

Alabama Gov. Kay Ivey’s office says the tree will arrive Monday at around noon.

This year’s tree is a 35-foot eastern red cedar grown in Fitzpatrick, which is in Bullock County.

The tree will be displayed on the steps of the Alabama Capitol.

The tree will be decorated throughout the week ahead of the annual lighting ceremony on Friday.
