The 2021 National Christmas Tree: Red, White…and Beautiful!
GE Lighting, a Savant company is honored to provide the lighting and design for the 2021 National Christmas Tree for the second straight year. Over the previous 57 years, the Tree was sponsored by GE Lighting while it was a General Electric company.
This year’s design includes a background of warm white lights with a delicate sprinkling of sparkling red and warm white sphere ornaments placed in a cascading pattern from the top all the way down the newly planted White Fir tree, with a cluster of sparkling red and white spheres on the lower branches. A simple, yet elegant star topper finishes off the design.
Using the latest in LED holiday lighting products, this is the 13th consecutive year that GE LED lights, many of them ENERGY STAR® certified, have been used exclusively to light the National Christmas Tree.
The National Christmas Tree is a cherished tradition, and with the advancements in LED lighting, innovative designs create new memories year after year. These advancements also give us an opportunity to utilize energy efficient and lighter weight options, helping to conserve resources and preserve this living tree.
The total wattage is around 5600 watts and because the lights are GE LEDs, they use up to 80 percent less energy than incandescent lights. The tree will be lit from dusk until around 11:00 P.M. every night.
