YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio (WKBN) – The City of Youngstown is having trouble finding a large Christmas tree for downtown this year — so it’s asking for help.
The downtown Youngstown Christmas tree is a long-standing tradition. It’s always been donated, cut down, brought into the square, and put up with a crane.
But this year, there’s no tree to be found.
According to Youngstown Park Director Bob Burke, the tree needs to fulfill certain requirements:
- From Youngstown or a surrounding community
- At least 25 feet and full
- Easily accessible and not close to any power lines
If you have a tree that could work, call Youngstown City Hall at 330-742-8700.
