Cedar Rapids city tree to be cut and moved Monday morning

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- Traffic may be backed up in downtown Cedar Rapids Monday morning as the city will be cutting down and moving its Christmas tree.

The 22 foot white fir tree will be cut around 8:00 Monday morning in the 700 block of 18th street NW and taken to the Tree of Five Seasons location at 1st Avenue and 1st Street.

City officials say traffic may be shut down to one lane while the tree is being set up.

Alliant Energy has provided LED lights to decorate the tree as a "go green" initiative to reduce power consumption in holiday lighting.

The tree will be lit on Saturday.
