The City of Auburn and the Auburn Public Works Department are seeking a beautiful, local tree to use in Festival Plaza this holiday season. The ideal tree will be located in Auburn; an evergreen — spruce or fir; at least 25 feet tall; and relatively “accessible” (no close power lines or other obstructions). The winning tree will be removed and transported at no cost to the property owner.
Once in place, the tree will be decorated with care by the Public Works team. It will be illuminated at 6 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 4, to the delight of spectators at the city’s annual holiday parade, officially kicking off the holiday season in beautiful downtown Auburn.
Tree donors will be recognized through publicity and social media and will be invited to the lighting ceremony. The tree will remain it Festival Plaza throughout the holiday season.
Want to see if your tree can “make the cut?” Residents and property owners who wish to donate a tree — and help us bring holiday cheer to downtown Auburn — are encouraged to submit their tree for consideration.

Visit and tell us why your tree should be the winner. Entries are due by Oct. 22.
