Tree Route

From Wyoming To Washington D.C.

Wyoming's gift to the United States Capitol will be a nearly perfect tree from the Bridger-Teton National Forest. Likely taller than a 7-story building at harvest, the tree will be cut on Saturday, November 6, 2010 and will tour the state of Wyoming for 7 days. After the Wyoming tour, the Capitol Christmas Tree 2010 will embark upon another tour across the country on its way to Washington, D.C.

Track the journey of the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree 2010 from its origin in the Bridger-Teton National Forest of Wyoming to Washington, D.C. On November 29, 2010 the tree will be presented to the United States Congress. The first time Wyoming has ever given the annual Christmas tree to the U.S. Capitol, this historic project is delivering not only a tree taller than a 7-story building, but nearly 10,000 handmade ornaments and 80 companion trees that will be placed in offices throughout the Capitol Complex.
