WASHINGTON, D.C.-- The US Capitol Christmas Tree was put in place on the West Lawn of the Capitol by workers Monday in Washington, DC. This year's tree is an Engelmann spruce from Newport Ranger District of the Colville National Forest in Washington.
The tree stopped in Spokane in early November. People had the chance to see the tree through a window with lights and ornaments decorating the top.
That 88-foot-tall spruce was cut on Nov. 1 in the Colville National Forest near Newport. It stopped in 22 cities on its way across the country.
