WASHINGTON (WTVD) -- North Carolina will provide the Christmas tree in the U.S. Capitol this holiday season.
A 78-foot red spruce called "Ruby" will be harvested from Pisgah National Forest on Wednesday at 11 a.m.
People can watch the tree cutting on the U.S. Capitol Facebook page.
A short ceremony will take place before the cutting that includes music and stories.
Every year, a different national forest is selected to provide a tree to appear on the west lawn of the U.S. Capitol building for the holiday season.
