Christmas tree needed for city hall

  • Print

The City of Winnipeg is looking for Christmas tree Santas.

The Public Works department is asking Winnipeggers with large spruce trees to contact them if they’re interested in donating their tree for city hall’s annual Christmas display.

To be considered for the city hall Christmas tree, a spruce tree must meet the following criteria:

  • be located in the front yard of a property with direct access to the tree
  • be 12 to 15 metres tall
  • be fully symmetrical with a single trunk and no brown needles

Urban Forestry Branch staff select the tree that best meets the identified criteria.

Tree donors do not receive compensation for the tree, but crews remove the tree at no cost to the homeowner as well as clean up debris and remove the stump to approximately two inches below ground level.

Homeowners who would like to submit their tree for consideration are asked to contact 311, open 24 hours every day, by phone at 311 or by email at 311@winnipeg.ca.
