Help String Lights on Christmas Tree Lane

Before the Christmas Tree Lane Tours Begin

Nearly a mile long, the blocks of Santa Rosa Avenue in Altadena between Woodbury Road and Altadena Drive are famous as Christmas Tree Lane.  The lane needs its lights strung at this time of the year, a volunteer activity.  If you want something fun to do and, in particular, if you like to climb trees, then plan a visit to the neighborhood any Saturday or Sunday before December 14th and lend your assistance.  Coffee, hot chocolate and donuts are served at 9:00 a.m. and work continues until noon when lunch is served.  More than one hundred 100+ year old deodar conifers line the street and need to have lights restrung every year.  This tradition of lighting the trees has been going on since 1920.  The weather is mild and the neighbors are fantastic.  As a historic landmark anyone helping out becomes a part of history.  Our private Los Angeles tours will be making regular trips to Christmas Tree Lane closer to the holiday as it is a truly magnificent and beautiful sight at Christmastime.
