Donate a Tree

A fun – untraditional Christmas tree theme!

Anyone¬†can enter a tree ūü饬†in the Festival. Many trees are entered to honor loved ones who have died. All trees help to raise funds to battle cancer. Last year there were¬†almost 100 beautifully decorated, artificial Christmas trees. Each had its own unique and often untraditional theme. Trees must be at least 3 feet tall. Trees of a less traditional nature are encouraged. If you, your family, your workplace, or your group would like to participate, then please contact Brenda Lacaire at 508-479-2350 no later than November 16, 2019 for an application.¬†¬†You can fill out an¬†On-Line Application or print and mail our¬†Tree Participation Form to Festival of {Giving} Trees, PO Box 387, Sturbridge, MA¬† 01566.
