Do you have a large evergreen tree that is nicely shaped that you want removed from your property? If so, consider donating it for the city to use for Lexington’s holiday season celebration.
Bring holiday magic to the entire city of Lexington by having your tree chosen as the beacon of cheer and merriment. City officials will evaluate all trees and select the two chosen for the city Christmas trees. If your tree is chosen, the City and Kentucky Utilities will coordinate with the property owner remove it in early November. There’s no financial compensation, however removal of the tree and stump grinding is free.
The chosen trees will be placed in Triangle Park and in front of the KU building on Quality Street. They will be decorated and lit Saturday, November 30, as part of Luminate Lexington presented by Kentucky Utilities. Help your tree live out its Christmas destiny!
The trees need to meet the following guidelines:
Property owners should call LexCall at 3-1-1 or Victoria Hamm at (859) 277-8703 if they want to donate a tree. You will be contacted by the city if your tree is chosen.
