Capitol Christmas Tree to Stop in Glasgow


November 1, 2017

The rumors are true: The Kootenai National Forest was chosen to provide a tree to appear on the west lawn of the U.S. Capitol for the Christmas season. This is the second tree provided to the capital from the National Forest. The tree will be cut on Wednesday, Nov. 8, and readied for the 3,000-mile expedition, which includes a series of stops in Montana communities, culminating with the official tree lighting in early December.

The tree will be stopping in Glasgow on Friday, Nov. 17, as one of two whistle stops scheduled in the area. It is our understanding at press time that residents will be allowed to sign the tree’s wrapper. Details TBA.
