Search for Park Square Tree Extended

The Pittsfield Department of Community Development Recreation Program has extended the deadline to call their office no later than November 14 for anyone who is willing to donate an evergreen tree located in Pittsfield for use as the city’s official Christmas tree at Park Square.

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.
