PORTLAND, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- The City of Portland has begun its hunt to find the the perfect 45-foot to 60-foot well-rounded tree to be decorated with thousands of LED lights and installed at Monument Square in downtown Portland for the holiday season.
According to the city the tree move is scheduled for Thursday, November 19, leaving just six weeks to locate the perfect tree!
"Each year we look for a stately and well-rounded tree within 10 miles of Portland that a resident needs to have taken down. If selected, the tree will be cut down and transported downtown at no cost to the home owner," said Portland City Arborist Jeff Tarling.
The target area is 'Greater Portland' and includes: South Portland, Cape Elizabeth, Scarborough, Westbrook, Gorham, Falmouth, Cumberland & Yarmouth.
