84 Lumber announces premier sponsorship of 2022 U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree

Eighty Four, Pa. —  When the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree makes its annual trip to Washington, D.C., it will do so with the support of 84 Lumber. For the first time, 84 Lumber is the presenting sponsor of what is known as ‘The People’s Tree’ this holiday season.

“84 Lumber is thrilled to sponsor the tree that brings so many people joy throughout the holidays,” said 84 Lumber President Maggie Hardy Knox. “We’re excited to be working with the U.S. Forest Service and Choose Outdoors for the first time through this partnership as well.”

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. The name ‘People’s Tree’ 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, and 84 Lumber will be among those tracking the tree’s journey from North Carolina to Washington, D.C. Each year, the National Forest that provides the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree, along with various partners from across the country, also provides thousands of homemade ornaments, many of which are created by children.

The tree lighting ceremony will take place late November and the tree will light up the West Lawn from nightfall until 11 p.m. each evening until Jan. 1, 2023.

“The annual journey is only possible with the help of sponsors from both the public and private sectors,” said Bruce Ward, president of Choose Outdoors, the non-profit partner of the U.S. Forest Service. “We’re grateful for the time and resources that 84 Lumber and all our invaluable partners are providing to help make this the best tour to date.”
