AHF Products to Sponsor 2022 U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree
Mountville, PA, September 9, 2022-AHF Products, through three of its flooring brands-Bruce, Armstrong Flooring, and Robbins-will sponsor of the 2022 U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree.
Every year since 1964, a different national forest has been selected to provide a tree for the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol for the holiday season. Called the People's Tree, the name reflects the nickname for the U.S. House of Representatives, the People's House. The 2022 tree will come from the National Forests in North Carolina.
The tree’s journey from the Pisgah National Forest to the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol building will kick off on November 5. Embracing this year’s theme of “From the Mountains to the Sea,” the tour is scheduled to make 14 public stops, traveling from the mountains to the sea across North Carolina and Virginia before reaching the West Lawn on November 18.
Beginning November 5, the tree’s journey can be tracked in real-time online at www.capitoltreetracker.com.
The tree lighting ceremony has historically occurred in late November or early December, with the tree then lighting the West Lawn from nightfall until 11 p.m. each evening until January 1, 2023.
