Oregon provided the Capitol Christmas tree in 2002, Idaho in 2003,
Virginia in 2004, and New Mexico last year shipped a 80-foot Engelmann Spruce 1,816 miles to Washington D.C.

This year Washington State is giving the nation's Capitol a magnificent 45-year-old Pacific Silver fir that grew naturally on a steep bank above the headwaters of the Wynoochee River in the Olympic National Forest.

Happy Holidays! I’m Claire Turner with 4-H Network News.
