The town of Brent was abuzz Wednesday as people lined main street for a chance to see the huge blue spruce from New Mexico on its way to Washington D.C. to sit next to the U.S. Capitol Building as an official Christmas Tree.

Watch the video for comments from the National Forest Service and local officials.
