Donate a Tree

You can help us celebrate 27 years of this magical community event by donating a decorated holiday tree to the Festival of Trees.  Although COVID-19 will prevent us from gathering together at Branch Street this year, we’re going virtual! Your beautiful and creatively decorated tree will be professionally photographed and displayed on our website and other social media platforms for over two weeks and viewed by a countless number of people from throughout New England and literally around the world.  Whether you’re advertising your business, promoting your organization, showcasing your children’s creations or decorating a tree for yourself or your family, you’ll be proud to be an important part of this exciting annual event. And, just as they always have, our ‘guests’ will have an opportunity to purchase chances to win their tree or trees of choice. 

As always, your tree donation contributes to the mission of the Festival of Trees Organization.  To date nearly 2 million dollars have been committed to historic preservation projects throughout the Merrimack Valley and Southern New Hampshire!

Creativity is encouraged! Tree size may range from mini trees (up to 24″) or as tall as 9′.  Since this year presents a number of unique challenges – including setting a tree set-up schedule that allows for safe physical distancing for you and all our volunteers – early registration is encouraged. Register online or return the registration form by October 16, 2020.

If you have questions about donating a tree for 2020, please call 978-685-8878 or email a member of the 2020 Tree Team at leaving your name, address, email, and telephone number. Your tree theme is up to you and a name for your tree is required.

Your decorated tree is a tax-deductible donation which will be raffled as part of the fundraising efforts of the Methuen Festival of Trees. The Methuen Festival of Trees is a 501(c)(3) private non-profit organization as defined by the US Internal Revenue Service code. The Festival will provide you with a donation verification letter should you desire it for tax purposes.
