The official website for the tree is located at capitolchristmastree2012.org. It sells items like the 2012 US Capitol Christmas Tree Ornament, which is crafted from genuine Colorado blue-stained pine. It costs $12. A portion of all proceeds collected from the sale of 2012 Capitol Tree merchandise are donated to non-profit organization Choose Outdoors.
