North Adams Puts Up Christmas Trees for the Holidays

 
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — It's beginning to look a lot like the holiday season with the installation of the city two Christmas trees on Main Street. 
 
The Highway Department traveled to Pownal, Vt., on Thursday morning to take down a 30-foot fir donated by the Pownal Fire Department. The tree stood for many years in front of the station on Route 346 and was lighted for the holidays. The department decided to have it removed because it was impeding the sight lines of drivers trying to exit the station and the adjacent post office.  
 
"A smaller tree will replace the large tree this spring and set farther back from the road," the Pownal Fire Department posted on its Facebook page. 
 
The tree arrived with a police escort to Monument Square with some lights already in place. It was trimmed by Lonny Cimonetti, who will be retiring next year, and hoisted into place with a crane from Atlantis Corp. of Stephentown, N.Y. Personnel from the highway and Wire & Alarm stabilized in place in front of the Civil War Monument.
