Vesmir Supports the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree Tour
Vesmir is proud to join as a partner in the 50-year tradition of the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree. As a way of helping the team address COVID-19 issues as they travel from Colorado to Washington, D.C., Vesmir will be providing logistical support in the form of:
- COVID-19 Information updated each morning
- Custom location updates as needed based on the tour schedule
- Custom updated COVID-19 Travel Maps on request
Every year since 1970, USDA Forest Service has provided the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree. Several smaller, companion trees will also be sent to Washington, D.C., to decorate government buildings and public spaces.
Providing the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree, also known as “The People’s Tree,” is a great honor for the State of Colorado and the Grand Mesa, Uncompahgre, and Gunnison (GMUG) National Forests. It provides an opportunity to highlight the state’s breathtaking cultural and natural resources and Colorado’s world-class recreational settings and activities.
The tree will be displayed on the west lawn of the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., with a public tree-lighting ceremony in early December 2020.
The U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree initiative is made possible with cash and in-kind contributions from companies large and small as well as volunteers locally and across America, who provide vital support of time and resources.
