EDH’s “unofficial” Christmas tree returns

For years El Doado Hills firefighters decorated the “unofficial” community Christmas tree at the El Dorado Hills Senior Center.

The sparkling tree at the corner of El Dorado Hills Boulevard and Lassen Lane brightened the major thoroughfare, spreading holiday joy to those driving, riding and walking by between Thanksgiving and New Year’s Day.

Unfortunately, several months ago, the 45-year-old, 35-feet-tall pine tree suddenly died and had to be re moved.

Fire Chief Dave Roberts received multiple calls from concerned residents and community groups. Would Christmas in El Dorado Hills be a little less bright?

Working together, officials from the El Dorado Hills Firefighters Foundation, the El Dorado Hills Community Services District and El Dorado COunty developed a plan to replace the tree with a 25-feet-tall cedar tree. The foundation paid for the tree and the CSD and county will provide the equipment and labor to plant it.

Everyone is invited to the tree planting ceremony at the El Dorado Hills Senior Center, 990 Lassen Lane, at 10 a.m. on Nov. 16. (Rain date: Nov. 21, 2012 at 10 a.m.).
