[ARCHIVED] Help us welcome the Carolina Sapphire Cypress!

CARRBORO, N.C. -- There's no place like Carrboro during the holidays. And as always, Town Hall will have its tree lighting ceremony, where a simple tree comes alive with twinkling lights. This year, the event is expected to be even more beautiful with a new live tree. 

The Town will welcome its first living holiday tree -- a 20 foot ‘Carolina Sapphire’ Arizona cypress (Hesperocyparis arizonica). This tree has been locally sourced and will be a welcome landscaping feature to Town Hall during the holiday season and all year long. 

The Carrboro Annual Holiday Tree Lighting is set for 7 p.m. Friday, Dec. 9. Join members of the Town Council along with local schoolchildren as we officially kick off the festive season with music and the lighting of the community tree. 

In addition to the tree planting occurring the week of Nov. 21, Town crews will be installing a new rain garden. This feature will capture and treat stormwater runoff from the Town Hall parking lot at the front of the building. The plant material chosen will be North Carolina native species that are pollinator and wildlife friendly. For information on rain gardens and the plants used in these features, visit https://townofcarrboro.org/2555/Rain-Gardens.
