The 64-foot Colorado spruce from Prospect Heights was one of 25 submitted to the city for consideration.
Got a big Spruce or Fir tree in your yard worthy of lighting up Daley Plaza this Christmas season? Chicago wants a look.
City officials are searching for the “perfect” tree to kick off the season at the 100th Annual Chicago Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony on Nov. 26.
Chicago's official tree has been donated by a single family since 2009. Last year's 64-foot Colorado spruce came from the Theiszmann family's front yard in Prospect Heights.
If you're interested, submit at least two photos to the Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events by emailing email@example.com or calling 312-744-3316.
Eligible trees must be a Spruce or Fir, be least 55 feet or taller, accessible for safe removal and located within 100 miles of Chicago's Loop.
All submissions are due by Sept. 13.
