Prague's Christmas Tree will come from the Liberec Region this year
Prague's Christmas Tree has been found! It grew to a height of twenty-one and a half metres on private land in one of the villages near Jablonec nad Nisou.
The tree came from thirty tips sent to us from all over the country. Thank you!
The next search will take place next year.
You do not bear any costs, we will provide everything:
contact the owner, dendrological survey, tree felling, heavy equipment - crane and tractor with a trailer, the actual transport of the tree to the site, its installation, lighting and decoration, including subsequent
disposal of the tree.
About the project
You don't have to be the owner of a tree or land, you don't even have to know the owner. Just send photos of the tree and the locality, including a description of the place, and we will arrange everything else. If a tree recommended by you is selected and placed on the Old Town Square, you will receive a reward of CZK 10,000.
Criteria for selecting a suitable tree:
- Representative appearance = Norway spruce (Picea abies), at least 20 meters high, visually healthy, regularly branched, undamaged
- Accessibility of the tree = access of heavy equipment (crane and tractor with trailer) on a paved road, enough handling space for felling and loading the tree
- tree health condition = satisfactory dendrological assessment
