Large tree wanted for Roxby Centennial Plaza

The City of Kelowna is once again looking for a large evergreen tree to become the centre attraction at Roxby Centennial Plaza in Rutland over the winter holidays.

The Park Services department is putting out the call to residents who want to donate a live 30- to 40-foot tall spruce or fir tree that will be decorated with holiday lights as part of the plaza’s Christmas display.

“This is a great opportunity to have a tree that has outgrown its space removed but see it used to add to the magic of the season,” said City of Kelowna arborist Harry Burggraaf.

Anyone who has an appropriate tree to offer can leave their name, address and phone number with the Parks Services office. Call 250-469-8503.
