A Wisconsin man is honoring his roots with a 44-year-old Christmas tree!

Rich Olson's father put the tree up in 1974, after several of his sons went off to war.

"He said he would never take it down again until he had all six brothers home, his sons."

The family never full reunited, and on Nov. 7, Olson's father died in a car accident.

So, 44 years after it went up, the tree still stands, now as a memorial.

But this Christmas, the family will finally say goodbye to the beloved tree.

"We're going to take it outside and light it up, the Christmas tree, for the last time and take everything off and toast to Dad."
