Chelmsford does this great thing between Thanksgiving and NewYear's annually now (this was the 4th annual). In the town's open spaces a random tree is decorated and the hunt is on to find them.  This year there were 16 trees scattered throughout the town.  Locations:

Thanksgiving Forest
Cranberry Bogs
Kroll Pasture
Sunny Meadow Farm
Red Wind Farm
Heart Pond
Crooked Spring Reservation
Deep Brook Reservation
Moore's Nature Park
Russel Mill Forest (+ a bonus tree)
Varney Playground
Bartlett Park
George BB Wright Land
Roberts Field
Lime Quarry Reservation

Andrew found all 16!  Oliver found 8 trees (not bad for a part-timer).

Here is a picture at Andrew's 16th tree in Thanksgiving Forest on Christmas afternoon.

Get out there!

Happy New Year!
