Every single year a tree is picked from around the country to be placed at the Capitol in Washington D.C. This year's selection is coming from our neighbors to the east.

The tree has been selected from Chippewa National Forrest near Cass Lake, Minnesota. According to WCCO in Minneapolis, this is the first time in 20 years that the tree was selected in Minnesota, and is a 88 foot white spruce tree. The tree is scheduled to make stops in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, Michigan, Ohio, and West Virginia before arriving at the Capitol.

While the tree makes the journey, it can also be tracked on the official Capitol Christmas Tree website. To see where the tree is currently, click here.

The tree is scheduled to arrive in Washington D.C. in early December.
