State seeks tree for holiday season

The state Department of General Services is seeking two New York State spruce trees to be displayed in front of the Capitol this holiday season.

One tree will be placed at East Capitol Park, and the other will be placed on the south side of the Capitol on the Empire State Plaza near the Plaza skating rink. The trees will be removed at no cost to the property owner in mid-November and lit as part of New York State’s tree lighting event in December at the Empire State Plaza.

The tree should be a spruce between 35 and 55 feet tall, easily accessible on the property, and clear of power lines. Proximity to the Capital Region is ideal.

If you have a tree you would like to be considered, please contact Kevin Ciampi at OGS by emailing [email protected] and include your name, address where the tree is located, a photo of the tree, and a contact phone number.
