Plumas Tree Chosen

Associated Press

A 75-foot Douglas fir from Plumas National Forest in northeastern California has been selected as the 1995 Christmas tree for the U.S. Capitol lawn.

A different national forest provides the tree each year, the Capitol landscape architect selects it and community groups raise money for cutting and shipping.

The tree is scheduled to be cut on Tuesday, Nov. 14.
