Parks’ Department needs help finding city’s Christmas Tree

The search is on for 30 to 40-foot Norway Spruce


Nashville, Tennessee ---Metro Parks needs your help in finding the perfect tree to serve as the centerpiece for the city’s holiday celebration and Mayor’s Annual Tree Lighting Ceremony, which is scheduled for 6:30 p.m., Friday, December 6, at Public Square Park.   

Metro Parks’ Horticulturalist Randall Lantz said he’s looking for a “30 to 40-foot Norway Spruce that looks good from all angles.  We would very much like to have a tree from Davidson County that has grown too big for its location. We know it’s out there.”  Lantz went on to say the Parks’ Department will cut down the tree, remove the stump, and plant a replacement tree, if desired. 

If you have a tree or know of one that meets the criteria, call Randall Lantz at 862-8400 or email him at Randall.Lantz@nashville.gov.
