GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (WOOD) — Tuesday was a big day for downtown Grand Rapids: the 42-foot-tall Christmas tree was installed at Rosa Parks Circle.
This year’s tree is a 4,000-pound concolor fir, also commonly called white fir. The tree has traveled more than 110 miles from Dutchman Tree Farms in Manton, north of Cadillac in the northern Lower Peninsula.
The tree was donated by Charlie and Elizabeth Secchia and John and Monica Inhulsen. It will be installed by Rockford Construction, Gelock Heavy Movers, Buist Electric and Shine Decorators.
The official tree lighting will take place on Friday, Dec. 3.
