Husqvarna Official Sponsor Of The 2004 Capitol Holiday Tree

Husqvarna will serve as an official sponsor of the 2004 Capitol Holiday Tree, which will decorate the front lawn of the U.S. Capitol Building in Washington, D.C. This is the fifth consecutive year Husqvarna has been chosen as a sponsor for the program. Husqvarna will provide two professional grade chain saws for the tree cutting ceremony as well as safety apparel for the individuals who will perform the tree felling.

The 70-foot Red Spruce will be cut in Virginia’s George Washington National Forest and will tour 33 communities throughout the state before being delivered via truck to Capitol Hill. Before starting its journey, the tree will be displayed at a send-off ceremony held November 13 in Highland County. Once in Washington, D.C., the tree will be the centerpiece of an official lighting ceremony, scheduled for December 9, and will be adorned with handmade ornaments from the residents of Virginia. More information on the 2004 Capitol Holiday Tree is available at

“Each year the Capitol Holiday Tree tradition is a great way to celebrate the beginning of the holiday season,” said David Zerfoss, president of Husqvarna. “Husqvarna is proud to be a sponsor and supporter of this outstanding program once again.”
