OCONTO, Wis. (AP) - A tree from northeast Wisconsin will take center stage at the White House for the 2016 holiday season.

Whispering Pines Tree Farm in Oconto says it has won the National Christmas Tree Association’s competition. That means a tree from Whispering Pines will be on display in the Blue Room of the White House next year.

WLUK-TV (https://bit.ly/1I1ec1w ) reports White House staff members get final say on which tree is selected.

The National Christmas Tree Association has presented the official White House Christmas tree since 1966.
