From Minnesota to Washington DC – The 2014 Capitol Christmas Tree
Follow the U.S. Forest Service Tree Team deep into the Chippewa National Forest for the search, selection and delivery of the 2014 U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree. This program provides a unique, behind-the-scenes look at the orchestration of the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree’s journey. From the preliminary search, to consultations with The Architect of the Capitol, to the cutting ceremony and the preparation for its voyage to Washington D.C., the Capitol Christmas Tree is an event in and of itself. Join us and discover how The People’s Tree impacted the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe as well as many other north and central Minnesotans, business people, and volunteers of all ages making some 10,000 ornaments.
