He has been erecting the Capitol Christmas tree for 13 years. Workers began assembling the  Christmas tree on the south plaza of the state Capitol Monday afternoon, Nov. 19, 2012.  The 30-foot artificial pine tree has 256 branches and 2000 lights.  The tree was donated to the state by the Weyerhaeuser Company Foundation seven years ago.   Trustees from the Hillside Community Correctional Center assisted state employees in attaching the greenery and ornaments onto the frame. Photo by Jim Beckel, The Oklahoman
