PORTLAND — The city is still searching for the perfect Christmas Tree to display in Monument Square this holiday season.
What’s wanted is a 40- to 60-foot, well-rounded tree within 10 miles of Portland that the owner would like removed. If selected, the city will cut down and haul the tree free of charge.
The tree will be erected in the square, decorated with hundreds of LED lights and illuminated the day after Thanksgiving. This year’s tree lighting ceremony takes place at 6 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 26.
To submit a tree for consideration, send a picture of the tree along with the address and phone number of the owner to firstname.lastname@example.org, or mail the information and picture to Portland’s Downtown District, 549 Congress St., Portland, ME 04101.
