A tree that had grown too big at a home in Randolph County is coming to West Virginia's state Capitol for a holiday display.

The 30-foot blue spruce has been in the front yard of Ed and Ginny Dumire's Beverly home for more than two decades. The couple donated it for public viewing at the Capitol complex in Charleston.

State Department of Administration spokeswoman Diane Holley-Brown says the tree will be on display at the north fountain at the Capitol this holiday season. Another tree donated from a South Charleston church will adorn the Capitol's south side, and a third tree from Fayette County will go up at the governor's mansion.

Gov. Earl Ray Tomblin will lead a lighting ceremony Tuesday night as part of the annual Joyful Night celebration.
