Larry’s Tree Redux

Return to Episode: Larry’s Tree Redux

Larry Smith is a Christmas tree grower in the tiny North Carolina town of Newland, population about 700. But even in a town that size, he’s hardly the only farmer growing trees — it’s pretty much what they do up there!

In 2018, Larry won the national contest to provide the official White House Christmas Tree for The Blue Room. Last year, his childhood friend Rusty Estes earned the same honor. And former NBA, NC State and U.S. Olympic great Tommy Burleson is another tree farmer (plus he can still reject a basketball, smack in someone’s face… as we found out).

There’s something in the air up here — and it smells a lot like Christmas!
