The 80-foot tall white spruce Capitol Christmas Tree, also known as the “People’s Tree,” recently completed its 2,000-mile cross-country journey from Minnesota to Washington D.C. for the 2014 season, participating in events in nearly 30 communities along the way. The annual holiday tradition, facilitated by the U.S. Forest Service in partnership with Choose Outdoors, is an opportunity to celebrate the importance of forest products and the role of wood in the U.S. economy.
