TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) --

Gov. Charlie Crist has accepted his last Capitol Christmas tree.

Agriculture Commissioner Charles Bronson and a couple who own a
Tallahassee Christmas tree farm presented the fresh-cut Carolina
Sapphire cypress to Crist on Wednesday, Dec. 1.

The full, blue-green tree will be on display at the entrance to
the governor's office through the holidays.

Crist, who ran for the U.S. Senate and lost rather than seek
re-election, leaves office Jan. 4.

Bronson joined Franco and Sigrid Camacho in presenting the tree
on behalf of the Florida Christmas Tree Association. It's a
Tallahassee tradition.

They said buying locally grown Christmas trees is an
energy-efficient and environmentally sound alternative to
out-of-state and artificial trees.
