Christmas tree coming from Olympic National Forest

The Forest Service says the official U.S. Capitol Christmas tree will come from the Olympic National Forest.

After the cutting, the tree will be taken on a tour on its way to Washington, DC. Stops are planned November seventh in Amanda Park, and November eighth in Aberdeen. Other stops are planned in Vancouver, Yakima, Walla Walla, Spokane, Tacoma, and Seattle.

The Capitol tree is scheduled to arrive in Washington, DC, on November 26th.

The tree will be displayed on the west lawn of the US Capitol, decorated with 10,000 lights and 3,000 ornaments handmade by Washington state school children.
