MEDIA ALERT: Park Central Square Christmas Tree to be installed at 9 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 15

MEDIA ALERT

City of Springfield Public Works will install the 2022 Park Central Square Christmas tree beginning at 9 a.m., Tuesday, Nov. 15. 

The 30-foot-tall spruce tree was generously donated by a local Springfield family. 

The tree will be cut down from the private residence by a team of arborists, then ushered through the streets of Springfield, arriving at Park Central Square on a flatbed trailer. Various pieces of large equipment are used to hoist the tree in place, with crane operators from Environmental Services offering up their services. Public Works street operations and public grounds crews team up to transport the tree and make final trimming adjustments to complete the installation.  

The tree will be decked out and ceremoniously lighted as a part of the Mayor’s Tree Lighting Holiday Show hosted 6-9 p.m., Saturday, Nov. 19 on Park Central Square. The actual tree lighting is expected to occur just before 8 p.m.
