WENATCHEE — The 88-foot Engelman Spruce cut for the 2013 U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree — “the People’s Tree” — will pass through Wenatchee Wednesday on its way to Washington, D.C.

The tree was harvested Friday from the Newport Ranger District in the Colville National Forest. A celebration was held in Newport before the huge tree was wrapped and loaded on a truck for its cross-country trip.
