[ARCHIVED] The Search is On! Portland Seeks Tree for Monument Square

portland news

Portland Downtown and the City of Portland are seeking the next “perfect tree” to grace Monument Square this holiday season.

 

Residents and property owners who wish to donate a tree are encouraged to submit the tree for consideration at portlandmaine.com/tree. The ideal tree will:

  • Be located in Greater Portland (including Portland, South Portland, Cape Elizabeth, Scarborough, Gorham, Westbrook, Falmouth, Cumberland or Yarmouth);

  • Be evergreen, spruce, or fir;

  • Be 45-60 feet tall; and

  • Be relatively accessible for retrieval (i.e. free from power lines and other obstructions).

The “winning” tree will be removed and transported from the owner’s property at no cost. 

 

Trees should be submitted for consideration at portlandmaine.com/tree as soon as possible and no later than November 1. Thank you in advance for helping us bring holiday cheer downtown!

 

Although a traditional tree lighting event will not be held this year due to the ongoing coronavirus crisis, Portland Downtown is planning to celebrate and showcase the tree in a fresh, fun, and safe way. An announcement will be made later this month – stay tuned!
