CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (WVIR) -A tree for the Grand Illumination on Charlottesville’s Downtown Mall was received by the city Monday.

An anonymous property owner donated the tree this year. It took a crew of about a dozen to cut and prep the tree for delivery.

Tuesday morning, the 25-foot tall, 28-year-old Norway Spruce was installed on the Downtown Mall at Central Place, near The Paramount Theater.

The Grand Illumination of the tree and a holiday concert presented by the city of Charlottesville and UVA Community Credit Union will be held on December 4, and televised starting at 6:00 p.m. on CW29 and it will continue on NBC29 at 7 p.m.
