The new tree arrives. acnatta/FlickrThe City of Birmingham will light this replacement Christmas tree tomorrow morning in Linn Park at 9:30 a.m. It arrived shortly after 3 p.m. this afternoon.

A crane and city crews were waiting to put the 30’+ tree into position so that those interested in helping decorate it may – beginning at 9 a.m. tomorrow.

The new tree was retrieved from nearby Tarrant and donated by 98.7 Kiss FM and Cox Radio as a replacement for the one that was burned down Wednesday morning as vandals attempted to steal its lights for copper.
