There will be a lit­tle bit of Cov­ing­ton in At­lanta this year, with the do­na­tion of 10 trees to the cap­i­tal and the gov­er­nor’s man­sion from Berry’s Tree Farm.

Over the last decade Chuck Berry, owner of the farm, said they have do­nated sev­eral trees to At­lanta for the hol­i­day sea­son and this year is no ex­cep­tion. Berry do­nated a va­ri­ety of all the trees avail­able at the farm, in- clud­ing Ley­land Cyprus, Vir­ginia pine, Fraser fir and Carolina sap­phire, rang­ing in height from 6-10 feet tall.

Gov­er­nor Nathan Deal and First Lady San­dra Deal will kick off the hol­i­day sea­son at the man­sion at 6:30 p.m. tonight with the tree light­ing cer­e­mony. This also be­gins the an­nual Christ­mas tours of the man­sion. For more in­for­ma­tion on the tours, call (404) 2611776; for more on Berry’s Tree Farm, call (770) 786-5833.
