Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

The Capitol Christmas tree arrived on the west lawn this morning, hauled in from El Dorado County and lifted from a flatbed truck by crane.

The 40-foot-tall white fir is 15 feet shorter than last year's. It was donated by the U.S. Forest Service's Institute of Forest Genetics. As is customary, the tree will be decorated with hand-crafted ornaments made by people with developmental disabilities.

A tree-lighting ceremony, the Capitol's 80th annual, will be held on Wednesday, Dec. 7.
