2022 United States Capitol Christmas Tree2022 United States Capitol Christmas TreePhoto of the 2022 United States Capitol Christmas Tree at dusk, featuring the Washington Monument. Each year, the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree (also known as the "People's Tree") is selected by the USDA Forest Service from a different part of the United States. For 2022, the honor was given to a 78-foot-tall red spruce affectionately named "Ruby" (shortened from the spruce's scientific name, Picea rubens) from the Pisgah National Forest in the southern Appalachians in western North Carolina. Happy holidays! As many of you know, I try to take a photo of the United States Capitol Christmas Tree every year. I usually take the photo with the Capitol in the background, but the Capitol is covered in scaffolding right now, so I shot this one facing the opposite direction. I think it looks quite nice with the Washington Monument in the background.

The tree this year came from the Pisgah National Forest in the southern Appalachians in western North Carolina. It's a 78-foot-tall red spruce affectionately named "Ruby" (shortened from the spruce's scientific name, Picea rubens).
