Some holiday cheer is on its way to the State Capitol.

Crews have cut down the State's Christmas Tree in a forest East of Redding in Shasta County Monday.

The White Fir stands about 53 Feet Tall, around 5 stories high.

It will eventually be decorated with 10,000 LED lights.

Officials say this is the 5th time the State's official tree came from this forest.
