2014 US Capitol Christmas Tree Project under way on Chippewa National Forest – Walker Pilot Independent

Since then, Forest employees, partners and community members have been building up momentum to get a 65-foot tree to Washington, D.C. to grace the front lawn of the U.S. Capitol building in December.

“It’s a wonderful opportunity to highlight Minnesota’s vast natural and cultural resources,” noted Lenz.
