2016 Portland Stimson Lumber Christmas Tree Info:

Stimson Lumber Tree Arrival | November 10, 2016 | Noon
Pioneer Courthouse Square will kick-off the 2016 Winter Season in downtown Portland Thursday November 10th at noon with the arrival of Portland’s Tree from Stimson Lumber Company. This is the thirteenth year Stimson Lumber Company has generously donated the city’s tree. The 75ft tall Douglas Fir was grown on sustainable forestlands near Timber, Oregon. The tree will begin its journey to the Square on Tuesday, November 10th with the help of Ness & Campbell Crane along with RAM Trucking.

Prior to its arrival at the Square, the tree will parade along SW Sixth Avenue along with Santa and The Beat Goes on Marching Band! Once it reaches the Square, Stimson Lumber’s Rodney Jacobs will present the Tree to Portland City officials. While the tree is being lifted in place, spectators can grab a FREE hot chocolate from Unitus Community Credit Union, say hello to Santa, listen to the festive carols of the Dickens Carolers, and kick-off the holiday season in Portland’s Living Room!

After two weeks of reattaching branches and tree limbs, more than 14,000 MULTI-COLORED lights will adorn the City’s Tree through the New Year. This year’s colored LED lights will utilize 91% less energy and last 50% longer than standard holiday tree lights.

Thousands of Portlanders will gather at the Square to celebrate 32 years of lighting of the spectacular 75ft tree. This year’s event will feature a holiday sing-a-long and  more!
