Height: 70 feet
Every holiday season, Houston unveils the Lone Star State’s tallest Christmas tree in front of City Hall. This year, the Mayor’s Holiday
Celebration tree is a 70-foot white fir, sourced from a snowcapped
mountainside north of Medford, OR. It’s believed that trees grow better
in this particular area due to superior soil quality, better exposure to
sunlight, and more moisture. At this year’s celebration, Santa and
Mayor Annise Parker will turn on the lights together.
9. New York
Height: 74 feet
When it comes to iconic status, Rockefeller Center’s Christmas tree—usually a Norway spruce—has no rival. (Well, except for the White
House’s smaller National Christmas Tree, which has more glitz than
girth.) Its size is in full accordance with its fame. Chosen trees must
be at least 65 feet tall and 35 feet wide. Though recent years have seen
100-footers, this year’s unofficial national tree is “just” 74 feet
tall. Still, it’s one of the country’s most cherished symbols of the
8. Portland, OR
Height: 75 feet
Oregonians found their state’s Christmas tree the subject of national headlines when an area teen was arrested for allegedly planning to
detonate a car bomb during the popular lighting ceremony. Fortunately,
the celebration went off as planned, and their towering 75-foot-tall
Douglas fir now shines brightly in Pioneer Square. This year’s tree was
grown in nearby Gaston, OR, and is the eighth donation from Stimson, a
locally owned lumber company.
Height: 85 feet
Since the 1940s, Bostonians have gathered on the Boston Common to watch the mayor flip on the seasonal lights. But the tree lighting
actually takes place a sleigh’s ride away, in front of Faneuil Hall
Marketplace. This year, revelers will be treated to a gigantic
85-foot-tall tree—plus bell-ringers, the Boston Symphony Orchestra, and a
cappella choirs. Taken together, Faneuil Hall and the nearby Common
will brighten Beantown with more than one million seasonal lights.
6. Toledo, OH
Height: 85 feet
For 25 years, the Toledo Zoo has hosted the city’s biggest holiday party, Lights Before Christmas. Not only is their resident Norway spruce
taller than Rockefeller Center’s, it’s decorated with more lights: some
35,000. To encourage energy conservation, the zoo is using LED lights.
They’ve also rigged two bicycles to the energy grid, allowing visitors
to help light the grounds using pedal power. With 120,000 visitors
expected, they shouldn’t have any problem keeping the lights on.
5. Kansas City, MO
Crown Center Square
Height: 100 feet
In many cities, the town’s tallest Christmas tree is bought, decorated, and hosted by a local business—often a shopping mall. In
Kansas City, mayor Mark Funkhouser takes pride in being responsible for
the tree that bears his office’s name. “No other city does it the way we
do it,” he said after flipping the switch on for 7,200 lights covering
the Mayor’s Christmas Tree, a 100-foot Douglas fir. “At moments like
that, I feel very proud to be the mayor of Kansas City.”
4. Los Angeles
The Americana at Brand & the Grove at Farmers Market
Height: 100 feet (each)
Los Angeles will never have a white Christmas, but that’s not stopping Angelenos from showing off the country’s tallest pair of cut
trees. Yes, two. This year, a pair of majestic 100-foot-tall white firs
were trucked down from northern California’s Mount Shasta and adorned
with 10,000 lights and 15,000 decorations—apiece, that is. One goes up
at the Grove at Farmers Market near West Hollywood, the other in nearby
3. Anthem, Ariz.
Height: 110 feet
That’s right—the country’s tallest cut Christmas tree isn’t found in New York City, D.C., or Chicago. This year, it’ll be standing in the
suburb of Anthem, just north of Phoenix. The 110-foot white fir—imported
from California—is decorated with two miles of lights and more than
3,000 ornaments. It took 14 workers to put this massive evergreen in
place. Now through Christmas, Santa will greet visitors at his cottage
next to the tree.
2. Ferndale, CA
Height: 150 feet
Year-round, the self-described “Victorian Village” of Ferndale, CA, looks like it was lifted from a Norman Rockwell painting. This hamlet in
Humboldt County, near the state’s famous Redwoods, is prized by film
directors for its well-preserved 19th-century architecture. Every winter
since 1934, the fire department has decorated the spruce that grows at
the end of Main Street. Can’t get there this season? There’s always next
year. As an historical landmark, the town isn’t looking to change its
traditions anytime soon.
1. Coeur d’Alene Resort, Idaho
Coeur d’Alene Resort
Height: 161 feet (and growing)
Alas, neither Rockefeller Center nor Washington, D.C. can lay claim to America’s tallest Christmas tree. Rather, a little-known resort in
Idaho called Coeur d’Alene has those bragging rights. At a whopping 161
feet, this record-holding grand fir is the tallest living Christmas tree
in America. It’s so huge that the star on top is itself 10 feet tall.
That’s bigger than the tree most people keep in their living rooms.
Happy Christmas ALL
