A 20-year-old green giant arborvitae will serve as the City of Rehoboth Beach’s Christmas tree this year. The 20- to 25-foot tree is being donated by Dean and Debbie Smith.
City elves Harry Caswell and George Plummer & Son will provide tree removal and transportation services to the city this year. Caswell is taking over the job from John L. Briggs & Co., who has assisted the city with Christmas tree installation since the tradition started in the 1980s. Delmarva Power also assists with tree installation at the bandstand.
