The Christmas tree in front of Baltimore's City Hall this year has ties to Johns Hopkins.
The tree was donated to the city by Caren Euster, a physician in The Johns Hopkins Hospital's emergency room. The tree, which came from Euster's yard, is a Norway Spruce measuring 34 feet high and 24 feet across.
Euster, who has been with Johns Hopkins for almost 20 years, heard an announcement on public radio a few years ago asking for tree donations for City Hall. Last year, her tree was a runner-up.
The tree was transported from Euster's yard to City Hall in early December to be installed and decorated in preparation for a tree-lighting ceremony, which was held Monday.
