Even before Halloween, Christmas spirit lumbered into the Americana at Brand Friday morning in the form of a 100-foot-tall white fir.
The tree, shipped in from Mt. Shasta, arrived at 6 a.m. on a flatbed truck and was hoisted by crane onto the outdoor mall’s green.
In the coming weeks, crews will cover the Christmas tree with 10,000 lights and 15,000 ornaments in time for its official debut ceremony Nov. 17.
