Milwaukee's City and County Christmas Tree was harvested this Thursday Morning.

The big donation came from 74 Street and Teutonia. It took just minutes for the 40-foot Colorado Blue Spruce to come down.

Then it was hoisted on a flatbed truck and transported with the help of a police escort to red arrow park. a one and half hour journey.
