Lewiston Seeks Donation of Spruce Tree for Holiday Celebration

The City of Lewiston is seeking the donation of a tree with which to decorate Dufresne Plaza (formerly Courthouse Plaza), Lewiston--the destination point for this year's "Parade of Lights." 

City Arborist Steve Murch is seeking a Spruce tree that is 35'-45' tall with a "good full shape and a single stem." The tree needs to be easily accessible, i.e., not growing into power lines and not in a backyard, and it also needs to be located within the City of Lewiston.

If interested in donating such a tree, residents may contact City Arborist Steve Murch at 513-3003, X3443; TTY/TDD:  513-3007 or at mailto: smurch@ci.lewiston.me.us. The City Arborist will inspect suggested trees and by mid-November, the owner of the selected tree will be notified. In regards to the tree removal, the City will also return in the spring to grind the stump and loam/seed the area.
