The Tree WAS in Town!
November 13, 2017

Check out the video of the day the tree passed through Eureka!

A new graphic has been created to describe the tree’s voyage from the Kootenai to Washington, D.C. The itinerary is laid out as if on the tree’s branches. Eureka is clearly marked as the #1 whistlestop!

The tree’s website now includes the video Eureka residents put together this summer. Huge kudos to all the photographers who participated!


Winners of The Kootenai National Forest Christmas Tree Photography Contest were announced on October 16, 2017:

Will O’Connell

Ashlyn Carvey

Their photos will travel with the tree on its way to Washington, D.C., and one will be presented during the tree’s lighting. The winners will receive round-trip tickets to Washington, D.C., to participate in the lighting.


See the video of their work!
