DETROIT (WXYZ) — The Downtown Detroit Partnership is looking for the 2019 Detroit Christmas tree and it needs your help!

Nominate your tree here

People within a 50-mile radius of Detroit can submit one of their trees to be chosen as the official 2019 Detroit Christmas tree.

Last year, a tree from the Duffina family in Plymouth Township was chosen to be the first Detroit-area tree to serve as the official tree. They donated their 60-foot Norway Spruce, and the DDP transported it to Campus Martius Park to be decorated.

If you want to submit your tree to be possibly chosen for the tree, there are some requirements. Those include: minimum 60-feet tall, located in the state of Michigan, preferably within a 50-mile radius of downtown Detroit, and a Norway Spruce.

To finish the nomination, you must complete the form by clicking here, submit two photos of your tree (one up close and one from a distance) and include a written description about it and why you think it should be chosen.

The family with the winning tree will have the removal paid for and get VIP tickets ot the 16th annual Tree Lighting Ceremony on Nov. 22, 2019, which will be broadcast on Channel 7.

The winner will be announced at the end of August.
