City's Christmas Tree has toppled


The Christmas Tree at Public Square Park is down. The 40-foot Norway Spruce blew over sometime last night. Metro Parks Horticulturist Randall Lantz said the tree may have fallen as a result of wind, rain and possibly a defective anchor. Because of the time, equipment, expertise and staff power needed to upright, stabilize and redecorate the tree - city officials have decided to remove the damaged tree from the Public Square.
