JAMESTOWN, NY (WNY News Now) – Those with the Jamestown Parks Department are on the lookout for this year’s municipal Christmas.
Normally the city finds a 40 foot tall evergreen tree to cut down and display on Tracy Plaza.
In recent years, it has become harder to find a tree suitable for the city to use as a Christmas tree, from a tree not looking presentable, to it being in a spot that is difficult for crews to access and safely cut the tree down.
As a result, those with the Parks Department are asking the public to contact them if they know of a tree suitable to be showcased during this year’s holiday season.
“If anybody thinks they’ve got an evergreen, whether it be a pine, a spruce, a fir, growing in their yard, front yard, back yard, side yard, here in the city, give us a call at the parks department,“ explained Parks Manager Dan Stone. “You can see us on Facebook at Jamestown Parks, our number is all over the place on the website. Give us a shout, we’ll come out, take a look at it, see if it qualifies and that we’re able to get it down.”
After finding the right tree, crews will prepare to cut it down. Ultimately bringing it to city hall sometime in mid-November.
