Lexington seeks Christmas trees for downtown

The city of Lexington is looking for four evergreen trees to be placed for the holidays in Triangle Park at Main and Broadway; the Robert F. Stephens Courthouse Plaza at Main and Limestone; Thoroughbred Park at Main and Midland; and in front of the KU Building on Quality Street.

If you have a tree to donate, the city will inspect it to see if it is suitable; if it is chosen, Kentucky Utilities will remove it in early November at no cost to you.

The tree lightings will be Nov. 29.

Trees must:

■ Be Scotch pines, balsam firs or Fraser firs.

■ Be 20 to 25 feet wide and 40 to 50 feet high.

■ Have a pyramidal shape, with fullness especially at the bottom.

■ Be growing in a place where KU can back a low-boy trailer up to the tree and place utility trucks on each side.

To donate, call LexCall at 311 before Nov. 3.
