Christmas is still more than four months away, but a New York agency is already looking for two spruce trees to display outside the state Capitol during the holidays.

The state Office of General Services is seeking two New York spruces to display: one for East Capitol Park and the other for the south side of the Capitol on the Empire State Plaza, near the Plaza skating rink in downtown Albany.

OGS says the trees will be removed at no cost to the property owner in mid-November and lit as part of the state's tree-lighting and fireworks on Dec. 7 at the Empire State Plaza.

The agency says the trees should be a spruce between 35 and 55 tall, easily accessible on the owner's property and clear of power lines.
