The National Christmas Tree is a 40-foot Colorado blue spruce that lives on the Ellipse year round. It was transplanted from York, Pa., to its present site in 1978. A model train display runs under the tree, maintained by volunteers from a local model train club. The path at the Pageant also passes before 56 smaller trees, representing all the U.S. states and territories. The trees will be illuminated every night from dusk to 11 p.m. through New Year's Day.
