It’s not the Capitol Christmas Tree, cut from the Chippewa National Forest and provided by the Leech Lake Band of Ojibwe–that tree is in St. Paul by now. If anyone has more information about where this beauty is going to end up, drop us a line in the comments!
UPDATE: Looks like it’s heading to Minnesota Power Plaza downtown.

This shot is from the afternoon of May 7, on W. Superior between 22nd and 23rd Avenue West. Watch this space for further developments!
