On November 5, the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree 2011 began to make its way from California to a December 6th, U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony. The tree and all of its ornaments are being transported by the latest in heavy-duty clean diesel technology and sponsored by DTF and DTF members BOSCH, Volvo Group and Mack Trucks Inc. Diesel moves approximately 90 percent of the nation's freight tonnage, and today nearly all highway freight trucks, locomotives and commercial marine vessels are powered by diesel engines.

Whether it's a delivery truck bringing you a package, a freight truck rolling down the highway carrying a huge Christmas tree, or a train carrying coal, merchandise and automobiles, you can bet there's a diesel engine working hard behind the scenes. Follow the progress of the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree on DTF's Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Diesel...) or follow us on Twitter @DieselTechForum (http://www,twitter.com/DieselTechForum) to get updates along the way as clean diesel power delivers the holiday spirit to Washington, DC.

Track the progress of the tree as it makes it way the Stanislaus National Forest in California to its arrival in Washington, DC on November 28 and its lighting in front of the U.S. Capitol on December 6 at http://www.trackthetree.com.
