Arrival of Official 2022 White House Christmas Tree, Biden Administration
This photograph of the 2022 Official White House Christmas tree arriving at the White House was taken by Matthew D'Agostino on November 21, 2022. Two Clydesdale horses, Ben and Winston, pulled the carriage carrying the tree up the North Drive where First Lady Dr. Jill Biden welcomed the 18.5-foot Concolor Fir from Auburn, Pennsylvania alongside her grandson, Beau Biden, Jr. The tree was presented by Paul and Pam Shealer, the 2022 National Christmas Tree Association's (NCTA) champion growers, and cultivated at the Shealers' Evergreen Acres Tree Farm in Schuylkill County, Pennsylvania. The tree was carefully delivered to the Blue Room, where it remained on display for the holiday season.
Since 1966, the Christmas tree displayed in the Blue Room has been presented to the White House following a contest run by the National Christmas Tree Association.
