Guidelines for the perfect tree, according to the Downtown Dayton Partnership:
- The ideal tree is approximately 45 to 60 feet tall and 25 feet wide.
- Colorado green spruce or blue spruce trees are preferred, but other types of evergreens will be considered if they are grand and stately.
- The tree must be located on nominee’s property in the front or side yard with clear access to the tree, free from power lines or transit cables.
