Join the City of Graham for the annual Christmas Tree Lighting tradition at City Hall.

This special tree that we light is a Fraser Fir, a native evergreen tree that grows on moist, cool slopes on top of the highest of the Appalachian Mountains in the Southeastern United States and can grow to 30 to 50 feet tall. It came to us from Alamance County Cooperative Extension in the fall of 2012. When this tree needed to be removed from their property, the Cooperative Extension reached out to the City of Graham to be its new home. It was too large to dig up ourselves, so we brought in a 90” tree spade on a truck to move it for us. The tree now thrives at City Hall and is a part of our community’s tradition, decorated with over 3,000 lights.
