Decorate a Tree

Guidelines for decorating your tree

  • Dana Adobe in collaboration with Holloways will provide each sponsor/decorator with one live Christmas tree, signage listing the sponsor/decorator, and electricity.
  • Standard trees measure between 7-8 feet in height; Anchor trees measure between 10-12 feet in height.  Because we offer live spruces, we cannot guarantee the width or shape of every tree.
  • Security is provided.
  • When you arrive to decorate your tree, you must check in with a representative.  At check-in, your lights and extension cord must be approved.  You will receive your sponsorship sign and then be able to select your tree. 
  • Decorators must provide their own decorations and lighting. 
  • Ladders will not be provided.
  • Edible items used to decorate are prohibited including but not limited to candy canes, popcorn, and birdseed.  They attract wildlife and compromise the safety of the environment. 
  • It can get windy on the Trail!  Please secure all decorations to your tree using pipe cleaners, small zip ties, or other string/ties. Ornament hooks can be used if the ends are secured.
  • Tinsel Trail is a family friendly display.  Please, no offensive or inappropriate decor.  We reserve the right to remove offensive displays. ​
  • Decorators must provide one 10 foot outdoor-rated extension cord. Please label your cord with the name of your business/organization.  Any additional extension cords must also be outdoor-rated. Surge bars are not allowed and will be confiscated.  
  • Use LED Outdoor lights only.  We reserve the right to remove any lights that are not LED.  We recommend using 4-5 strings of LED outdoor lights per tree.  Lights should be strung with the male end of the plug coming from the bottom of the tree. 
  • Drilling into the fence is NOT allowed.
The DANA Adobe & Cultural Center is OPEN. At this time only the gift shop and trails are open in precaution to keeping everyone safe and healthy.
