The City of
Nampa Parks and Forestry Department is looking for residents who are willing to
donate a 25-to 30-foot tall evergreen, pine or spruce tree for the Downtown
Christmas tree. Spruce trees are the preferred species because they are fuller
trees. Additionally, trees must be located within or very close to the Nampa
city limits with easy access for the equipment.
The tree will be
placed in Downtown Nampa at the Horse Mural Park at 1st Street and
12th Avenue. Mayor Bob Henry will officially light the city
Christmas tree and thank the family donating the tree at approximately 5:30
p.m. Saturday, Nov. 26. Musical programs will start shortly after 5 p.m.
To offer your
tree for donation, please contact the Parks Department at 468-5890.
