SHASTA COUNTY, Calif. - Reporter Spencer Joseph is tracking the state's 2019 Christmas Tree coming from Redding.

Since 1950 there has been a Christmas tree in front of the state capitol every single year like clockwork.

The tree's journey doesn’t just start at the Capitol, it starts in the shadows of Mount Shasta in the LaTour demonstration state forest which is managed by Cal Fire.


The 2019 tree was harvested Monday and Tuesday was making its way down Interstate 5.

So if you’re looking in the mirror and see a giant tree coming towards you know it’s a holiday tradition 70 years in the making.

But maybe not take out your Christmas sweaters quite yet the tree takes a while to decorate and will be lit up in early December.
