The hunt is on for the City of Dearborn’s official 2013 Christmas tree. Dearborn residents are invited to submit their trees for consideration for the honor.
Dearborn residents with a tree in mind are invited to call the Public Service Division as soon as possible, but no later than Nov. 7, at 313-943-2317.
The city’s Christmas tree will stand by the west entrance to the Ford Community and Performing Arts Center through the holiday season. It will be adorned with decorations and colored lights.
It will be the focus of attention at the city’s Treelighting Ceremony and Sing-along on Monday, Dec. 9 at The Center.
Dearborn’s Public Service Division will evaluate trees nominated to be the city’s official Christmas tree.
Trees must be at least 30 feet tall, and be a spruce or similar species. Trees must be in a front yard area that is easily accessible to heavy equipment. Only Dearborn residents can nominate trees.
City tree care specialists will remove the tree selected as the official Christmas tree from the owner’s property at no cost, but the owner will be responsible for removal of the stump.
