Search Begins for Pittsfield's Official Holiday Tree

Do you have a tree that would be perfect to donate and serve as Pittsfield’s official Christmas tree at Park Square? If so, The Pittsfield Department of Community Development Recreation Program would like to hear from you.

Criteria used to select the city’s official holiday tree will include: minimum height of approximately 30 feet; superior shape; ease of access to the tree for cutting; adequate room to safely fall the tree; and ease of transporting the tree.

Screening and selection of trees will take place the week of Nov. 2.  Cutting and installation of the tree at Park Square will be scheduled shortly after the selection. 

Interested parties should contact Pittsfield’s Recreation Activities Coordinator, Becky Manship, no later than Oct. 30 at 413.499.9370 or via email parks@pittsfieldch.com.
