AGRIBUSINESS: Capitol Christmas Tree Arrives In D.C.

After a cross-country trip from Colorado’s White River National Forest, this year’s Capitol Christmas tree arrived at the front lawn of the U.S. Capitol.

The tree, a 73-foot, 74-year-old Engelmann Spruce, will be adorned with ornaments made by the residents of Colorado. 

Former Colorado Senator and licensed truck driver Ben Nighthorse-Campbell drove the tree to D.C., and says he thinks the tree is representative of his state’s resilience in the face of devastating forest fires this summer.
