EAST WENATCHEE — It’s late August and time to start thinking about Christmas.
It is at least for the city of East Wenatchee. City officials are already looking for the perfect Christmas tree to put up in front of city hall for the holidays. And it may be in your yard.
If you have a blue spruce or fir tree about 30 to 40 feet tall that you want removed, the city may be able to help you out.
Only one perfect tree will be picked.
City employees will cut that unwanted tree — preferably one in East Wenatchee or Douglas County — chip out the stump and fill the hole free of charge in mid-October.
Anyone with such a tree and wanting it to be removed can call city’s events office at 886-6108.
