The 2018 U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree was cut down in Oregon's very own Willamette National Forest Friday, Nov. 2, 2018. It's the second time the state has provided a Christmas tree to Washington D.C. The first tree, a Douglas fir, was provided by the Umpqua National Forest in 2002.

If it is a national forest, is is federally owned and managed. The state has little say in what goes on there, so the feds gave the feds a tree from the forest...
The amazing part is the found one still alive and were able to cut one in a Nationalized Forest.
What’s truly amazing is that it’s actually being called a Christmas Tree again.
They found a “Christmas Tree”???
And I thought this weekend was merely for falling back and hour. I must’ve awoke in a different time/dimension.
They allowed that?????
The irony, from the most Trump hating state in the union.
How it must gall them.
I love it.
It's NOT anything new.
Check it for IEDs, or at least anti-Pres. Trump graffiti carved into it.
Trump is pretty popular in most of Oregon.
DJT should make sure that the National Christmas Tree is from a state he carried.Michigan...Wisconsin...even Florida (a beautiful palm tree)!
He's damn popular in Massachusetts too.Except for Boston,Cambridge,Martha's Vineyard,Chappaquiddick and a number of other areas.
Chappaquiddick IS Martha’s Vineyard,part of the Town of Edgartown.
Don’t forget Newton and Brookline -——never been red in my lifetime.
**Christmas Tree.....Obama and Michelle also called it a Christmas Tree.
It’s NOT anything new.**
No, not new at all: Jeremiah 10:1-15
36 counties. Five are blue and control the total. Oregon needs a state version of the electoral college. 31 counties very, very red.
Yup,understood...I know both very well.My comment was meant for a wider audience,one that probably has never heard of either one.
