Everyone has seen the massive Christmas Tree at Navasota City Hall. But, from where did it come, and how did it get here?
City Manager Brad Stafford talked about it al in the last episode of Grilling Stafford.
“The tree came from Oregon, we had to order it, we do that every year, in order to get a tree that large that will really stand out for our citizens. So, it came from Oregon, it is 30 feet tall. Dominique [Lowery] goes through a big process to make sure he gets a really good tree. You see all that, at time’s Square and the State Capitol, they piece their trees together,”
“Not us,” said Stafford. “We get a real tree.”
All in all, too, Stafford noted that the tree did come on the pricy end, but it was worth it.
“Tree did cost us $3,500 this year. But, it is for our community, it is for our lighting, for the community at the end of our parade. It is just a really beautiful tree,” Stafford said.
Stafford also said that, when it is time to come down, the tree is mulched up and recycled within Navasota.
