The Sullivan Family donated the tree. They say it has been in the front yard of their home on Jackson Woods Court NW since they moved in four years ago. It's too tall for them to climb up and put lights on it.

So, they reached out to the city to see about donating it.

Crews are taking the tree to Greene Square where they will do the official lighting this Saturday.
