Jackson residents Anthony and Stephanie LaPorte are donating the tree, which is in a yard on the city's east side.

On Nov. 2, volunteers from the Michigan Association of Timbermen and the Great Lakes Timber Professionals Association plan to cut down the tree and transport it to Lansing. The next day, Lansing's Hi-Ball Co., which is donating a crane and crews, will set the tree on the front lawn of the Capitol.

Officials accepted nominations from around the state through the end of July and then began evaluating trees. The Jackson tree was first nominated in 2009.

A tree-lighting ceremony is set for Nov. 16.

This style is more evocative of the modernist trend from the seventies and oddly, the tall tapering trees that were in good turn throughout the Victorian era. It was Queen Victoria who insist on the tallest tree likely for her living room and the thin tree girth was also essential in arrange to fit these tall slim trees into Victorian home.

Christmastime is the perfect time to show your mom simply how much you love your ex and appreciate for everything my wife done for you these years. No one contains that special portion of your heart when compared with your mom, and giving the best Christmas gift. http://www.facebookcovers123.com...
