The flatbed trailer is framed to keep the branches of the 2013 U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree protected
for its long journey from Washington State to Washington, D.C. Plywood completes the cocooning,
and a special section at the top of the tree is equipped with decorated “windows” to allow the public
to catch a glimpse during stops along the way. (U.S. Forest Service photo)

Keeping the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree from drying out is important during the 5,000-
mile trip from Washington State to Washington, D.C. The end of the trunk is wrapped
with a 40-gallon bladder that is refreshed throughout the trip. The tree needs more
than 50 gallons of water each day to stay fresh. (U.S. Forest Service photo)
