City Seeking Tree for 2021 Holiday Season

Tree on display at the intersection of Cass and East Front Street

The City of Traverse City is seeking a tree for the 2021 holiday season to be on display at the intersection of Cass and East Front Street. The City works with Team Elmer’s to source a tree that is in need of being removed, or at the end of its life, for display each year during the holiday season. The removal of the tree is at no cost to the owner.

Criteria for the tree is to be approximately 30’-40’ in height.  Previous varieties used are Blue Spruce, Norway, or White Spruce. The tree shall be located within a reasonable distance of the City of Traverse City for transportation purposes and be easily accessible by crane on the property.

“The City has had a unique and successful holiday tree program for decades and we are in need of the perfect tree for this season. We have been fortunate to have utilized trees in the past that are in need of removal or at the end of their life and looking to do the same for the 2021 season,” says DPS Director Frank Dituri.
