Bangor Public works installed the city’s holiday tree in West Market Square on Tuesday.

The 35-foot balsam fir was found on Hodgdon Road in Levant by Dan Sprague, a Bangor resident and holiday tree volunteer, according to the city’s Facebook Post. Sprague and David McElvain, of Hartt Electric, cut the tree this past weekend.  

The official tree lighting will be held on Dec. 3.
