BOISE -- The Treasure Valley celebrated the start of the holiday season, with the lighting of two trees on Monday night.

Around 6:00 p.m., the Capitol Tree and the Nampa Tree were lit up in bright lights.

The Capitol Tree is 45 feet tall and was donated the Kelchner Family from north Boise. The Idaho Department of Administration says that the tree was originally 90 feet tall, but they had to cut it because it was too tall. According to the rings in the tree, it was planted in either 1946 or 1947.

Nampa's tree is a 60-foot tall Colorado spruce tree and 13,000-pounds. The tree was donated by Charles and Sandy Schell who live at 312 Sunrise Rim Road in Nampa.

Caldwell held its tree lighting on Friday, November 18th.
