Christmas Tree

With Thanksgiving still eight days away, merchants at Riverpark Square wasted no time decorating for Christmas by installing an artificial tree in the entryway. The tree is several stories high, and appears every holiday season.

To be honest, I always wondered how they did it. Well, today I got to see. These photographs show workers constructing a tall conical frame which they then cover with artificial evergreen branches. I have to say, I was duly impressed. The last photograph on this post may give you some idea of the height. By the way, a similar photograph coincidentally appeared this morning in the Spokesman-Review, "Region" section.
