Pittsfield: City searching for holiday tree

The Department of Community Development Recreation Program is seeking the donation of an evergreen to serve as the city's official holiday tree at Park Square.

Criteria used to select the tree includes a minimum height of approximately 30 feet, superior shape, ease of access to the tree for cutting, adequate room to safely fall the tree, and ease of transport.

Screening and selection of trees will take place the week of Oct. 30. Cutting and installation of the tree at Park Square will be scheduled shortly after the selection.

Interested parties should contact Becky Manship at 413-499-9370 or via email parks@pittsfieldch.com no later than Oct. 27.
