The Payette National Forest has been selected to provide the 2016 U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree. For more than 50 years a tree has graced the west lawn of the U.S Capitol; and since 1970, a national forest has been selected to provide the honored tree, a gift from the national forest and its home state. Learn more about selection of the tree, ornaments, partnerships, sponsors, calendar of events, and volunteering by visiting the Capitol Christmas Tree web Page.
