MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin is going to be cutting the Christmas trees for the Statehouse and the Pavilion office building in Montpelier.

Shumlin will be harvesting the trees on Monday at the Purinton Tree Farm in Huntington.

He will be continuing the annual tradition of visiting a local tree grower to cut his own Christmas trees for the Statehouse and Pavilion Building.

The governor will be accompanied by Tim Schmalz, the head of the Plant Industry Division of the Agency of Agriculture.

Last week, the 32-foot Christmas tree that will be decorated outside the Statehouse was cut in Arlington. That tree is due to be lit on Dec. 4.
