LEXINGTON, Ky. (LEX 18) — Lexington's city officials are looking for one or two Evergreen trees to be donated for this year's holiday celebrations.

The chosen trees will be placed in Triangle Park and in front of the KU Building on Quality Street. They will be decorated and lit Saturday, November 30, as part of Luminate Lexington presented by Kentucky Utilities.

Trees need to be 40-50 feet high and 20-25 feet wide to be considered.

There is no financial compensation, but removal of the tree and stump grinding is free.

Call LEXCall at 3-1-1 if you are interested in donating your tree.
