MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in downtown Montgomery.
The 45 foot tall Eastern Red Cedar that will serve as the official state Christmas tree arrived at the capitol Monday morning.
The tree came from state-owned land in east Montgomery County and transporting it downtown was apparenty no easy task.
"A crew from the Department of Transportation cut the tree down..." said Governor Bob Riley's press secretary, Jeff Emerson. "Obviously we commend them for their hard work."
The tree will be lit with 23,000 lights Friday night at 5:15pm.
