(KSL News) -- The state capitol is busting with the Christmas-time aroma of evergreen.
The state's giant Christmas tree was hoisted into place at the Capitol rotunda this morning.
Workers used ropes, winches and a crane to lift the 32-foot blue spruce into place.
The tree was donated by David and Dennis Jorgensen.
It grew in the yard of their family home in Orem... for the past 30- years.
Dennis Jorgensen, Donated Tree: "IT'S KIND OF EXCITING FOR US AND A LOT OF FUN TO BE ABLE TO HAVE THE TREE BE DECORATED AND ENJOYED BY EVERYONE IN THE STATE."
The tree will now be dressed for the holidays.
Governor Olene Walker will light the holiday tree at the annual "Lights On Ceremony" at Noon, December 2nd.
