Christmas tree for the Chancellery comes from Thuringia

The Forest Owners Association for Thuringia has donated a 15 meter high fir tree to the Chancellery. There was also another present.

Berlin – A fir tree from Thuringia is standing in front of the Federal Chancellery in Berlin this year.

The approximately 15-meter-tall Colorado fir should arrive on Saturday on a low-loader and then be set up in the courtyard with the help of a crane, as Larissa Schulz-Trieglaff from the Working Group of German Forest Owners’ Associations of the German Press Agency said.

On Wednesday, representatives of the association want to hand over the tree donated by the Forest Owners Association for Thuringia to the Executive Chancellor Angela Merkel, together with an oak chess piece.

The Working Group of German Forest Owners’ Associations hands over a Christmas tree to the Federal Chancellery every year, whichever country it comes from. In 2020 a tree from Hessen adorned the square. Regardless of this, Thuringia has always been delivering the Christmas tree for the Brandenburg Gate since 2015. dpa
