State’s Largest Christmas Tree arrival

A Festive Holiday Season Starts with a Fresh-Cut Tree

Outlets at Anthem to Display State’s Largest Christmas Tree Throughout Holiday Season

Outlets at Anthem is already preparing for the Christmas season! Arizona’s tallest fresh-cut Christmas tree is scheduled to arrive at the North Phoenix shopping destination, Thursday, Oct. 24, at 6:30 a.m.

For the 18th consecutive year, Outlets at Anthem will be home to a magnificent white fir that measures 80-feet tall, 20-feet wide and will weigh close to four tons when completely decorated. The tree will also be topped with a three-foot-tall copper star, which is a nod to the state’s official metal. More than 1.5 miles of LED lights, approximately 10,000 bulbs, will illuminate the tree and roughly 5,000 ornaments and bows will finish off the breath-taking spectacle.

To assure the tree is kept fresh all season long, it is housed in a custom-made seven-foot deep well and sprayed with nearly 120 gallons of fire retardant. Six guy-wires hold the tall tree in place and stabilize it during windy weather. 

Outlets at Anthem’s spectacular tree will be transported all the way from the California/Oregon border on a 40-foot flatbed truck. It will then be hoisted into place with an industrial crane where a 10-person team will spend two weeks – and more than 120 hours – using mobile cranes to shape and decorate the tree.

Once the fir is fully decorated, shoppers are invited to attend the annual Tree Lighting and Concert event, scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 16. The no-cost family-friendly event includes a ceremonial tree lighting, spectacular holiday concert and a visit from Santa Claus.
