Trimble Customer Central Oregon Truck Company to Bring the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree to Washington D.C.

Christmas might be a little more than six weeks away but the start of the holiday season is in full swing for one Trimble customer.

 

Starting today (Friday, November 9), Trimble customer Central Oregon Truck Company is taking the 2018 U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree on a cross-country trek to Washington D.C. Beginning in Oregon’s Willamette National Forest, the 3,000 journey will commemorate the 175th anniversary of the Oregon Trail by traveling the reverse path of the historic route.

 

In addition, Kenworth Truck Company and Eugene, OR-based Papé Kenworth are sponsoring the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree program with a custom-wrapped Kenworth W990. Along the way, the tree will visit more than 20 communities, ending the journey in Washington D.C. for a public tree lighting ceremony early next month.

 

The tradition of the Capitol Christmas Tree, or “The People’s Tree,” dates back to 1964, with a different national forest chosen each year to provide the tree. 2018 marks the first selection of a Noble Fir as the tree of choice. Each year’s tree is evaluated on a variety of characteristics, including its height, stem straightness, uniform branching and color.

 

Curious to see if the tree will be making a stop in your town along the way to Washington D.C.? Keep tabs on the journey via the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree Facebook page.

 

At Trimble, we are committed to helping fleets and their drivers have a safe and efficient journey, regardless of what they are headed or what they are hauling. Contact us today to find out how we can make all aspects of your fleet better, safer and greener.
