St. Louis, MO (KMOX)–The 2012 U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree will be stopping in St. Louis on Sunday.  The 70-foot England Spruce was grown on federal lands in Colorado, not on a farm.  It’s making a 23-city tour from Colorado to Washington D.C. and will be in St. Louis Sunday for just one day.

As the tree travels around the country, it’s carrying a message about sustainable forestry as well as inviting people to assist with raising funds for the Forest Restoration Challenge.  The Challenge was set up to help areas impacted by the massive wildfires which devastate areas near Colorado Springs and Fort Collins.

The tree will be outside the Edward Jones Dome from 9:00. a.m.-4:00 p.m.  All festivities with the tree are open to the public and free of charge.
