Have you got the tree for the New Haven Green?

NEW HAVEN — The staff of the city Department of Parks, Recreation & Trees is looking for a tree to be used on the Green during the winter holidays.

The donated 55 to 70 foot tall Norway spruce or Douglas fir tree ( not a blue spruce) will be decorated with more than 30,000 lights; be the holiday centerpiece of the historic Green and will be removed for free.

Trees 25 to 40 feet high will be considered for future years or other locations.

To donate a tree, call Christy Hass at the Parks Maintenance Division at 203-946-8004 or
