Good news for all the fans of the National Christmas Tree eagerly awaiting news on whether they’ve won tickets to the lighting ceremony on Dec. 3: while you wait, you can track the tree!
That’s right, SkyBitz, the Herndon, Va.-based remote asset management company, announced Tuesday that for the eighth year it will update the website trackthetree.com. According to the statement, the company is using a combination of hardware devices and satellite and cellular network data to deliver up-to-date tree location information to the website.
The 2015 Capitol Christmas tree is coming from the Chugach National Forest in Alaska, and is the first Capitol Christmas tree to do so. It began its 4,000 mile journey to Washington, D.C., on Oct. 27 with a sendoff ceremony in Seward, Alaska. As of press time, the tree appears on the outskirts of Seward.
