Oh, Christmas tree! Oh, Christmas tree! You’re wanted by our city!

That’s right, it’s that time of year again. Well, not really but the city seems to want to get a head start.

Oh, Christmas tree! Oh, Christmas tree! You’re wanted by our city!

That’s right, it’s that time of year again. Well, not really but the city seems to want to get a head start.

The City of Hamilton announced Wednesday (Sept. 26) that they are starting the hunt for trees to be part of the centrepieces for the holiday celebrations this upcoming Christmas season.

The City is asking residents to consider donating the perfect tree, which must be at least 40 feet (12 metres) tall, in the front yard, accessible from the street and clear of overhead wires.

The trees, the city said, will be cut and transported at no cost to the owners.

Three trees will be selected for display at Gore Park, City Hall, and Memorial Square in Dundas. Additionally, branches from several other trees will be used for wreaths and boughs.

The city asks that if you have a large Spruce tree in excellent condition in your front yard that you think is a winner, please call 905-546-2424, extension 4392.
