Christmas Tree Goes Up In Oakhurst | Community Spirit
The following information was provided by Jarrod Lyman -- Yosemite Sierra Visitors Bureau Director of Media:
Oakhurst, CA. – ‘Tis the season for holiday decorations to start appearing, as crews delivered a 60-foot White Fir to its new home in Oakhurst to serve as this year’s community Christmas Tree.
Donated by Sierra Tel, the tree was logged under permit from the Sierra National Forest, crews from the company harvested and transported the tree to the traditional spot at Highway 41 and Road 426 at the Talking Bear/Century 21 Ditton Realty Plaza.
Crews will continue their efforts next week as they put up hundreds of Christmas lights and decorations in preparation for the annual Christmas Tree Lighting on December 1.
