NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

Nashville has found its Christmas tree.

Davidson County residents David and Mary Taylor and David Helmontaller have donated a 35’ Norway Spruce for the city to use this year, the Metro Parks and Recreation Department announced Thursday.

“We are absolutely delighted about this donation. We were looking for a specific tree in a specific circumstance, a tree that had outgrown its location, and this tree was it,” said Randall Lantz with the parks department.

The tree will be cut down and the parks department will plant a replacement tree for the Taylors. NES will transport the tree to Public Square Park for installation. The tree will then be decorated with approximately 6,000 lights.

The tree lighting ceremony is scheduled for Dec. 2 at 6 p.m. at the Metro Courthouse. It will include performances from school bands, choirs and special guest Margo Price.
