After a long cross country journey, the Capitol Christmas tree is up in Washington.
Workers unloaded the tree from its trailer and moved it onto the Capitol lawn using a crane to lift it. The Blue Spruce tree is 85 feet high which is more than seven stories tall. It came from the White Mountains of Arizona and is the first time Arizona has provided the tree.
