Stroll on State Tree

Stroll on State Tree

Cutting down a tree for the holidays is a tradition for many and we want to continue making memories by sharing this tradition with our Rockford community. The RACVB, Tree Care Enterprises Inc., R.L. Leek Industries, Inc., Creative Crane, Stenstrom and the City of Rockford Police Department work together to safely transport the annual Stroll on State Christmas Tree from where it's planted to downtown Rockford. Thank you to the City of Rockford Christmas Tree sponsor, Northwestern Illinois Building Trades Unions.

Tree Submissions

Where do we find the perfect tree? From YOU in the local area! We put a call out for a tree that fits all the criteria and then we accept submissions until we find that perfect one. In order to submit your tree to be the Stroll on State tree, it must be easily accessible and it must be a donation. We will come out with everything necessary to move the tree! 

The beautiful blue spruce selected for the 2019 Stroll and State event is over 30 feet tall! Thanks to the Wagner family of Pecatonica for donating the tree.
