Eagle Island produce for stocking stuffer fruits and nuts. The old Krispy Kream store complete with large site window for hot doughnut production viewing. Water street ball park Christmas trees.Belks downtown for animated window viewing....Most important The Big Christmas tree. It's easy to move somewhere magical that you fell in love with and want to mold it to what you want or think it should be but remember thats why you came here in the first place. Old traditions are hard to kill because they touched so many lives, so many hearts. From a childs first time seeing Santa to the young man who proposed to his sweetheart, maybe your grandparents? I love that tree and the magic it holds for me. I understand its not as majestic as it once was, but neither am I....I hope they dont discard me for that.
would make a helluva lot of firewood. Take to the woodlot to be split and given to those who need firewood to heat their homes this winter.
For decades, the sad tree has been dying at the hands of abuse. Most recently, the water plant dug a deep hole right next to the trunk, obviously disrupting root growth patterns. I understand the sentiment, but c'mon, it's an embarrassing eye sore; it's not accessible or visible. It's time to move on. 4th street used to be a viable corridor fully decked in holiday splendor. Now, the pavement is all but gone and the neighborhood in serious decline. Traditions come and go. It's time to move on.(Signed a 48 year resident)
Trees have a life span just like people. This one is just at the end of its life. Let it go with some dignity instead of with a telephone pole and lights.
THE TREE WAS ONCE BEAUTIFUL AND MAJESTIC. IT HAS BEEN RAVAGED BY THE WEATHER.(STORMS,ETC AND TIME)IT WILL BE A SAD ENDING TO A BEAUTIFUL TRADITION, BUT TIME AND WEATHER HAS TAKEN ITS TOLL. LONG LIVE THE MEMORY OF "THE WORLDS LARGEST LIVING CHRISTMAS TREE"
