PORTLAND — Portland's Christmas tree is due to be delivered.
Keely Crane Services and Shaw Brothers Construction have donated staff, crane and transportation services for Thursday's delivery of the 65-foot tree to Monument Square.
Jeff Tarling, city arborist, says the city conducted an exhaustive search for the tree but in the end the tree was close by, on the property of Alan Betters in South Portland.
The tree will be adorned with more than 3,000 LED lights donated by Efficiency Maine for the city's tree-lighting ceremony on the day after Thanksgiving.
