LSU to reveal permanent Christmas tree
BATON ROUGE - LSU announced plans Monday to reveal a permanent Christmas tree which they said will cut down on pollution from transporting their annual tree to and from the campus.
The 30-foot magnolia little gem tree was planted on Sept. 25, and will be featured during the annual LSU Holiday Spectacular in December. The university said that the living tree symbolizes their commitment to celebrate the holidays in a greener way.
LSU got the tree from a local tree farm through the support of donors of the LSU Foundation's Campus Beautification Fund, which is supported by proceeds from LSU ornaments sold each fall.
A dedication ceremony for the tree will take place Wednesday, Oct. 1 near Free Speech Circle at 2 p.m.
