Search is On for Park Square Tree

The Pittsfield Department of Community Development Recreation Program is asking anyone who is willing to donate an evergreen tree for use as the city’s official Christmas tree at Park Square to call their office no later than November 1.

Criteria to be used in selecting the city’s official holiday tree will be: 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 November 4.  Cutting and installation of the tree at Park Square will be scheduled soon after the tree has been selected.  For more information contact Pittsfield’s Recreation Activities Coordinator, Rebecca Tefft, at 499-9370.
