Christmas tree has appeared on the Market Place

Christmas tree`s appearing to the Market Place is a sure mark of coming holidays. Christmas tree was set on Wednesday November 9 by lumberjacks and  and a crane. Christmas tree will get its lights during the Christmas season`s opening on Saturday, November 19. 

This year`s tree was found at Pihkainmäki hill.

We always choose for the Market Place a good shaped, beautiful and about 20 m tall tree. If chosen tree damages during the cutting, we have a "reserve" tree chosen, - tells Kuopio City`s forester Heikki Soininen.
