Biltmore tree raising – AshVid.Net

I just discovered AshVid.net, an area-specific video sharing site. The clip linked to below shows the delivery of this year’s huge Christmas tree as it is hauled in on a wagon drawn by three horses — Clydesdales, by the look of them. The tree is carried into the the great hall then, in a somewhat precarious operation, raised with ropes and braced by 2x4s. I’m glad I don’t have to string the lights on that monster.

Vodpod videos no longer available.
