A Kenworth W990, hauling the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree – a 60-foot Blue Spruce cut from the Carson National Forest in New Mexico – has completed the 2,000-mile delivery to Washington D.C.
The Capitol Christmas Tree, transported by Wilbanks Trucking Services, stopped at more than 25 community events during its journey across America.
A tree lighting ceremony held Dec. 4 was hosted by the Architect of the Capitol, in conjunction with the U.S. Speaker of the House.
The Kenworth W990 that delivered the tree features a graphics package that showcases the New Mexico state flag, along with Ship Rock, a 7,177 foot-high mountain rock that resembles a 19th-century clipper ship. On the door and sleeper, the U.S. Capitol Building is shown with a Christmas tree, with the wording: “From the Land of Enchantment to Enchanting the Nation” written above the graphics.
