Charleston, W.Va. (AP) -- A christmas tree that will be displayed inside the White House this holiday season is coming from West Virginia.

Eric and Gloria Sundback of Shepherdstown were selected this month as grand champions of the national christmas tree contest at the National Christmas Tree Association's annual convention and trade show in Chattanooga, Tenn.

For the Sundbacks, it's their record fourth win. Their trees were displayed at the White House twice during the Ronald Reagan years and once under Jimmy Carter.

The Sundbacks have grown christmas trees since 1956.
