The 2022 State Capitol Christmas tree was harvested from the Rancho Deluxe Good Neighbor Authority (GNA) timber sale in coordination with the Montana Department of Natural Resources and Conservation, the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest Pintler District, Sun Mountain Lumber, Parke Logging, Inc., and the Montana Logging Association. This is the first capitol Christmas tree harvested from a GNA timber sale.

The governor and first lady encourage Montanans to visit the state capitol to see the Christmas tree throughout the month of December.
