The search is on!
Portland Downtown and the City of Portland are seeking the next “perfect tree” to grace Monument Square. The tree will be illuminated on November 24th — wowing thousands of spectators and officially kicking off the holiday season in beautiful Downtown Portland!
The ideal tree will be evergreen, spruce, or fir; 45-60 feet tall; and relatively accessible for retrieval (i.e. free from power lines and other obstructions). The “winning” tree will be removed and transported from the owner’s property at no cost. Plus: you’ll get some fabulous perks including: a one-night stay at Holiday Inn by the Bay, VIP tickets to the Tree Lighting celebration, and complimentary tickets to Merry Madness on Dec. 7th. How cool is that?
If you have a tree that fits the description in Greater Portland (including Portland, South Portland, Cape Elizabeth, Scarborough, Gorham, Westbrook, Falmouth, Cumberland or Yarmouth), please let us know today. Complete the form below and upload 1-3 photos to be considered. All submissions will be reviewed carefully and a selection will be made by November 1st. Thank you for your submission!
