Louisville Metro seeking 40-foot tree for annual event

Louisville, KY., – Louisville Metro is looking for someone to donate the large Christmas tree that will stand in Jefferson Square Park through the holidays.

“It is always the main attraction of our Light Up celebration,” said Mayor Greg Fischer. “We hope someone will come forward with just the right tree.”

The tree should be a spruce or fir, about 40 feet tall and well-shaped. The city will cut and transport the tree to its prominent spot at 6th and Jefferson Streets. Anyone interested in donating a tree should call MetroCall 311. The tree donor will be thanked at the Light Up Louisville sponsor reception on a date to be determined.
