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 holiday tree at Park Square? If so, the city’s Department of Community Development Recreation Program would like to hear from you.

Criteria used to select the 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 transport.

Screening and selection of trees will take place the week of Oct. 31.  Cutting and installation of the tree at Park Square will be scheduled shortly after the selection. 

Interested parties should contact Becky Manship, Recreation Activities Coordinator, no later than Oct. 28 at 413-499-9370 or via email
