84 Lumber Joins the U.S. Forest Service at the harvesting of the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree

84 Lumber associates joined the U.S. Forest Service and the North Carolina Forest Service at the harvesting of the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree, a 78-foot red spruce affectionately called “Ruby,” from the Pisgah National Forest in a ceremony on Nov. 2, 2022.

84 Lumber is the presenting sponsor of this year’s tree, also known as the “People’s Tree” since it comes from public lands.  The ceremony included a musical performance by Woody Platt and Shannon Whitworth, and the Cherokee Legend of the Evergreen Trees told by this year’s Youth Tree Lighter, Coche Tiger, a citizen of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians.

The ceremony was live-streamed on the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree’s Facebook page at facebook.com/uscapitolchristmastree.
