Holiday cheer. Celebration. Gifts of tradition. The beautiful natural Christmas trees that adorn the official residences.
For 12 consecutive years, the National Capital Commission, steward of the official residences, has gratefully welcomed these generous annual gifts of beautiful trees from the Canadian Christmas Tree Growers Association.
These huge trees, Fraser firs, ranging from 3 to 3.6 metres (10 to 12 feet) in height, are grown in the Ottawa–Gatineau area, and are a wonderful addition to the seasonal decorations at the official residences.
Visitors to Rideau Hall’s public areas can see one of these beautiful, natural Canadian trees during this holiday season.
