After a journey of more than 5,000 miles, a Mack Pinnacle delivered the 2013 Capitol Christmas Tree to the U.S. Capitol. The tree traveled from the Colville National Forest in the state of Washington to the west lawn of the U.S. Capitol, making stops in communities across the country. The 88-ft. Engelmann Spruce was hand-selected from a pool of candidate trees suggested by Colville National Forest employees.
As a sponsor of the tree tour, Mack provided two Pinnacle models for the cross-country tour. Both were decaled with the 2013 Capitol Christmas Tree tour logo and patriotic images of a bulldog pulling a Christmas tree toward the U.S. Capitol. The trucks were equipped with the Mack mDRIVE automated manual transmissions and the Mack Twin Y air suspension. Mack has provided trucks for the Capitol Christmas Tree tour several times, most recently in 2011 and 2012.
