Capitol Christmas Tree


Every year, a different national forest is selected to provide a tree to appear on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol building for the holiday season. The 2020 tree will come from the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre and Gunnison National Forests in Colorado. From ornament making and special events to sponsorships and a cross-country tour, we invite you to follow the journey to D.C. throughout the year.
