Park Central Square Christmas Tree to be installed 9 a.m. Tuesday, Nov. 13


City of Springfield Public Works will install the Park Central Square Christmas tree beginning at 9 a.m., Tuesday, Nov. 13.

The 25 to 30-foot-tall blue spruce was donated from a residential property in the Ravenwood South subdivision.

The tree will be cut down and 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 Public Works street operations and public grounds crews teaming up to hoist the tree in place and make final trimming adjustments to complete the installation.

The tree will be decked out and ceremoniously lighted at the Mayor’s Tree Lighting ceremony at 7 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 17 on Park Central Square.

Visit for a full list of festive family events held in downtown Springfield this holiday season.
