Search for the annual Christmas Tree of Hope (CHML)

HAMILTON, ON - August 16, 2017 - While we enjoy the last few weeks of summer, The City of Hamilton’s Public Works Department is already starting to hunt for the perfect tree to be the centrepiece for celebrations in Gore Park for the upcoming Christmas season.

The City is asking residents to consider donating the perfect tree, which must be at least 40 feet (12 metres) tall, in the front yard, accessible from the street and clear of overhead wires. The tree would be cut and transported at no cost to the owner. 

If you have a large Colorado Blue Spruce tree in excellent condition in your front yard that you think is this year’s winner, please call 905-546-2424, extension 4392.
