JAMESTOWN – It may only be early November, but the first signs of the Holiday Season will soon be popping up in the Jamestown area.
Officials with the City of Jamestown Parks, Recreation and Conservation Department will be harvesting this year’s Christmas Tree next Monday at 9 a.m.
They say the tree is expected to arrive at City Hall around 10 a.m. on Monday.
This year’s tree is a 40-foot tall White Spruce that is being donated by the Carl and Donna Mazzurco Family.
The tree will be harvested from their residence on Cole Avenue in Jamestown.
Once the tree is removed by a crew from the City’s Parks Department, along with the assistance from the Jamestown Board of Public Utilities, it will then be loaded onto a truck and trailer that is donated and driven by Lake Shore Paving.
Once the Spruce is transported to city hall, a BPU crane will raise and hold the tree in place while it is secured in preparation for decorating with nearly 4,000 energy saving LED lights by parks staff members.
The White Spruce Tree will tower approximately 40 feet above its base on Tracy Plaza.
Officials say a ceremonial lighting of the Christmas Tree will be announced at a later date.
