US Capitol Christmas Tree Will Come From Wyoming

Saturday, 10 Jul 2010 04:54 PM

 

The U.S. Capitol's grounds superintendent has chosen a 67-foot Engelmann spruce from Wyoming to be the official Christmas tree at the Capitol this December.

Wyoming officials at Bridger-Teton say the tree was chosen near Jackson but its location will be kept secret until November when there will be a cutting ceremony. The selection was made by Ted Bechtol and his decision was announced Friday. He called it "an aesthetic sort of judgment."

After the tree is cut, it will be loaded on a trailer for a tour across the country before it is placed at the Capitol in early December. Last year's Christmas tree came from the Apache-Sitgreaves National Forest in Arizona.
