The tree commemorates the Year of the Great Jubilee marking the 2000th Anniversary of the birth of Jesus Christ.

The millennium was all about the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ.  That is why in the Catholic Church the celebration began, not on New Year's Day, but on Christmas Eve, when the Holy Father opened the Holy Door in St Peter's Basilica just before Midnight Mass. He thus launched what the church calls the Great Jubilee of the year 2000. It continued until January 6th, 2001, the Epiphany, that great feast which marks "the manifestation of Jesus as Messiah of Israel, Son of God and Saviour of the world" (Catechism of the Catholic Church, p 528).
