National Tree Tracker

Chippewa National Forest in Minnesota will provide the 2014 U.S. Capitol Christmas tree. The tree is expected to be 60 – 70 feet tall and most likely to be a White Spruce (Picea glauca), which is the same species as was first provided by the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe in 1992. In addition, companion trees will be provided by the Minnesota Tree Growers Association to be placed inside offices in Washington D.C., such as the Chief of the Forest Service Office and the USDA. The tree lighting traditionally occurs after Thanksgiving as determined by the Speaker of the House of Representatives.

Here is the link to track the tree.
