(KSL News) Christmas is just over a month away, and one of the state's largest Christmas trees is on its way to a new home.
The 35-foot Colorado blue spruce was donated by a West Jordan family because it was getting too big for their front yard.
Bradley and Leslie Sermon say the tree has been a part of their family since 1979 when they first planted it.
Today the tree was cut down, lifted by a crane and carefully placed on a large flatbed semi truck.
Now it's on its way to the Gateway where it will be decorated for the holidays.
The Gateway will officially light the tree the day after Thanksgiving.
