The Daily Sentinel: Capitol Christmas Tree makes stop in GJ on way to D.C.
In all his years driving for Apex Transportation, Butch Hanna has never felt so much pressure on a delivery. He’s delivered many items in his time, but this year is the first he’s ever transported the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree.
For the first time since 2012, the tree that will shine bright in Washington, D.C., from late November to the end of December, will come from Colorado. The 55-foot Engelmann spruce tree, which was cut down last week, is now loaded into the trailer of an 18-wheeler for a statewide, and soon to be nationwide, journey.
