The Architect of the Capitol (AOC) selects the annual US Capitol Christmas Tree in consultation with the United States Forest Service. Every year (for 51 years!), a different national forest provides the US Capitol Christmas Tree, which decorates the west lawn of the US Capitol building for the holiday season. Nicked named Sugar Bear, the 2021 tree, an 84-foot fir, came from the Six Rivers National Forest in California.

This special tree traveled cross-country, more than 3,500 miles, to the US Capitol, where it is decorated with twinkling lights and thousands of handcrafted ornaments. Guests are invited to visit it on the West Front Lawn; the tree will be lit from nightfall until 11 pm through January 1, 2022.
