New Haven seeking the perfect holiday tree for the Green

NEW HAVEN — It may only be August but the city Department of Parks, Recreation and Trees has begun the hunt for the city’s holiday tree.
The department is looking for a 55- to 70-foot tall Norway Spruce or Douglas Fir tree to stand tall on the Green during the winter months. The donated tree will be decorated with more than 30,000 lights and will serve as the holiday centerpiece of the historic Green.
The tree will be relocated free of charge. Trees between 25 and 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 email her at If you have a photo of the tree, please include in your e-mail.
