This year’s City Square tree is a massive 50 feet tall.
It is decorated with 24,000 lights.
The original Leeds tree was gifted from the King of Norway after World War II to thanks Britain for its efforts in the liberation of Norway.
The tree used to be located outside the police station, where John Lewis now proudly sits, but was relocated to City Square.
The huge tree had to be especially chosen for its shape and size, and has to be carefully anchored and protected, guarding it both against Winter winds and any over-energetic late night visitors who might try to climb it!
