Big rig T880 is bringing Christmas to our nation’s capitol
In a 50-year tradition, the Christmas tree that shines throughout December on the lawn of the U.S. Capitol is cut in one of the nation’s states.
This year’s Capitol Christmas Tree, a whopping 88-foot white spruce, was cut in Minnesota’s Chippewa National Forest on Oct. 29. Followed by a caravan of caretakers, it will make more that 30 celebratory stops on its 2,000-mile truck journey to Washington, D.C. It is carried by a Kenworth Truck Company T880, assembled for the honor in Chillicothe, Ohio.
