Site of Governor Scott’s Annual Tree Cutting

At a time when officials say some parts of the U.S. are seeing a national wholesale tree shortage, Vermont’s Agency of Agriculture indicates Vermont farms are equipped to meet the demand this winter. To kick off the 2021 holiday season and to celebrate Vermont’s tree farmers, Governor Scott and Agriculture Secretary Anson Tebbetts selected Maple Hill Farm Barton Vermont for the annual tree cutting. They cut Christmas trees to decorate the Pavilion Building which houses the Governor’s office in Montpelier. Quite an honor for the Lussiers!
