The 2017 U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree, an Englemann Spruce, comes from
the Kootenai National Forest in Libby, Montana. This marks the third
time the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree was grown in Montana and the second
time in the Kootenai National Forest.

“We are excited to support the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree’s journey to
Washington, D.C. for the tenth year,” said Henry Popplewell, President,
SkyBitz. “Throughout the 10 years, we’ve not only formed great
partnerships with our peers in the transportation industry, but also
with the national forest community and the Northern-Virginia area where
the tree brightens the Capitol for the holidays. We look forward to
continuing this wonderful tradition for years to come.”

The tree will begin its 2,500-mile trip to Washington, D.C. on November
13, 2017. The tour will begin with the first community celebration in
Eureka, Montana. From there the tree will make more than 20 community
celebrations in cities across the U.S.

“The tour and community events give the public a chance to enjoy the
Capitol Christmas Tree throughout its journey,” said Bruce Ward, founder
and president of Choose Outdoors. “We are grateful for SkyBitz’
decade-long support of the Capitol Christmas Tree and continued
participation by using its innovative technology so everyone can ‘track
the tree.’”
