MEEKER, Colo. (AP) - The U.S. Forest Service is looking for help decorating this year's U.S. Capitol Christmas tree. Over 5,000 handmade ornaments are needed to decorate the tree, which will come from Colorado's White River National Forest.

Another 1,000 ornaments are needed for smaller trees that will decorate offices in Washington, D.C. The Forest Service is asking children across the state to contribute ornaments.
