The Capitol Christmas Tree came to Davis on November 13th. People from across Tucker County and beyond were on hand to catch a glimpse of the Capital Christmas Tree. The 63-foot Norway spruce has been touring the area since being harvested from the Greenbrier Ranger District and Randolph County area of the Monongahela National Forest. Amy Albright, Program Director for the 2023 US Capitol Christmas Tree and US Forest Service spoke at the event. Tucker County Commission President Mike Rosenau gave the opening remarks. The tree arrived by enclosed semi truck and was escorted by a long line of various law enforcement. Prior to the arrival of the tree, a fighter jet was seen flying over Davis. Two banners hung from the trailer containing the tree that the public were encouraged to sign. Several local groups and school children have supplied handmade ornaments for the tree and were displayed on the tree. Refreshments and a performance of a bell choir were held at a Christmas Village set up at the Davis Fire Hall. The US Forest Service had an information booth set up for the event that featured the removed tip of the Capital Christmas Tree, as well as a tree “cookie,” a disc of the trunk cut from the tree.
