MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - The State Capitol Christmas tree was on its way to Madison Tuesday morning.
Jim Draeger of Antigo provided the balsam fir -- and he and his crew were driving it for 175 miles to Madison.
It will be stored just outside the Capitol until December 2nd, when it will be brought inside and decorated.
Wisconsin youngsters normally provide ornaments for the Capitol tree. They can still submit them until Friday.
They must reflect the theme of the tree. This year's theme is "Wisconsin Traditions."
