YOU CAN SUBMIT YOUR OWN TREE

If you have an huge and easily accessible tree on your property that you'd like to donate to the event. I's time to get on it.

And, in case you didn't know this, they come out with everything necessary to move the tree.

What a fantastic donation your tree would be for this extremely popular holiday event.

How to submit your tree for Stroll On State consideration:

You will need to fill out Stroll On State's tree submission application as soon as possible to be considered for this year's event.

Keep in mind, if you don't make the 'cut' this year, submit the tree next year. Another year may just make the tree more beautiful.

Visit Stroll On State's website to get the application.
