City of New Haven Searching for Holiday Tree for Historic Green

New Haven Tree Lighting

The City of New Haven is undertaking an extensive search to find the perfect tree for this winter's holiday festivities on the historic Green, including the popular tree lighting ceremony.

To qualify, the tree must be a 55 to 70 foot Norway Spruce.

If your tree is selected to be the centerpiece of the Green this upcoming holiday season, the city will remove it free of charge.

It will be decorated with 30,000 LED lights over the holiday season.

If you have a tree that you would like to offer for this great event, please contact William Carone with the City of New Haven Parks department.  He can be reached at or 203-946-8576.

Trees that are currently 25 to 40 feet may be considered for future use.

NBC Connecticut is proud to be the official television partner of the City of New Haven's Tree Lighting Ceremony and winter festivities on the Green.
