This year’s U.S. Capitol Chistmas Tree may be coming from Arizona, but it’s an Oregon company that has the honor of keeping it healthy during its three week journey to Washington, D.C. OAN member GSI Horticultural, based in Bend, Ore., will provide Moisturin, its anti-transpirant, to protect the 85-foot blue spruce as it is shipped eastward on a flatbed truck and displayed at several stops along the way. The cut tree is also expected to drink about 65 gallons per day of GSI’s RootZone, an anti-transpirant and plant conditioner. The tree will be cut in early November, and you can follow its journey on GSI’s Web site.
