The public is invited to see the harvesting of the 2011 Historic City of Redding Christmas Tree. Sunday, November 6, at 9 a.m. off Highway 44 east of Shingletown. Each year the tree is placed in Downtown Redding to celebrate the Holidays.
The tree, donated by Sierra Pacific, will be placed at the California Street Parking structure adjacent to the Market Street Promenade. Redding Electric Utility provides tree lights and placement.
To get to the tree-cutting site from Redding, take Highway 44 east and turn left on 300 Road, about five miles past Shingletown. Markers along 300 Road will guide to the 2.5-mile route to the tree-cutting site.
This is a great free-of-charge activity for the whole family.
