The tree is harvested in the National Forests of North Carolina and ends its journey on the West Lawn of the United States Capitol in Washington, DC Spireon’s FleetLocate®The trailer management solution tracks the tree’s GPS location and you can track it at www.capitoltreetracker.com.

“Being part of the US Capital Christmas tree journey is always a highlight of the year for us,” said Roni Taylor, Spireon’s SVP of Strategy and Business Development. “We are thrilled to support this unique tradition that celebrates both the season and our country’s forests. The joy this event spreads in the communities is always inspiring and we are so proud that our products will be a part of it.”

Each year since 1970, the USDA Forest Service has donated a tree from one of the national forests to be placed on the US Capitol lawn. This year, a 78-foot tall red spruce will be sourced from the wooded slopes of North Carolina’s Pisgah National Forest.

The official farewell ceremony will take place on November 5th at the WNC Agricultural Center in Fletcher, North Carolina. A series of community celebrations are held as the tree makes its way through the region, stopping in North Carolina, Virginia and Maryland. Well-wishers have the opportunity to sign banners on the side of the truck, learn about the national forests and purchase items related to the US Capitol Christmas tree. The highlight of the tour is the official tree lighting on the West Lawn of the Capitol on November 18th.

Spireon’s FL Flex 2 telematics device was selected for its versatile functionality and ability to support a wide range of assets. Spireon is uniquely able to track any type of trailer, from dry and refrigerated trailers to specialty flatbed trailers needed to ship oversized cargo like the US Capitol Christmas Tree. By tracking the tree’s journey live with GPS, Spireon provides a means for local communities along the tree’s whistle-holding route to line the streets and greet the tree as it passes.
