N.C. to supply 2022 Capitol Christmas tree
When Christmas 2022 rolls around, a tree from North Carolina’s national forests will adorn the U.S. Capitol building.
The National Forests in North Carolina has been chosen to provide the 2022 tree, and with the theme of “From the Mountains to the Sea” is kicking off a year-long celebration to connect people to N.C.’s public lands. This will be the third time N.C.’s national forests have provided the tree, previously doing so in 1998 and 1974.
The state’s four national forests — Nantahala, Pisgah, Uwharrie and Croatan — receive about 6.5 million visitors per year, making them some of the most visited national forests in the country.
