Municipality launching public search for Christmas trees

The Halifax Regional Municipality is looking for submissions of large spruce or balsam trees for the holiday tree lighting ceremonies at Grand Parade Square and Sullivan’s Pond.​

Many factors including invasive species and tree maturity are impacting these tree varieties in parts of the province. To select trees that meet the ideal size requirements for the two locations, the municipality needs to diversify where holiday trees come from.

Submissions can come from anywhere in the province. Trees must be on private property and accessible from the street. The ideal size is 6-10 metres tall for the Sullivan’s Pond location or 9-16 metres for the Grand Parade location. Questions or submissions can be sent to holidaytree@halifax.ca
