This year's holiday season will be full of cheer thanks to System Transport, which will deliver the United States Capitol Christmas Tree to Washington, D.C. The 2021 tree will travel from the Six Rivers National Forest in California to the West Lawn of the United States Capitol building as an annual gift to the nation.
The tree will be harvested in late October and transported across the state and country, arriving at the United States Capitol in late November. Thousands of handcrafted ornaments produced by Californians will cover the tree, brightening the nation's Capitol during December.
System Transport was chosen as the hauler for this year's tree on the recommendation of Kenworth Truck Company and based on industry reputation on the West Coast.
“As a second-generation family-owned and operated company, Christmas is a special time of year for us,” Dennis Williams, President and CEO of Trans-System, told KXLY (a television station out of Spokane, Wash.) “We are proud to be a part of the annual tradition that brings the Christmas spirit to our nation’s capital, and to all the families who gather around their own trees to share the spirit of the season.”
