On Nov. 6, the state Capitol Christmas tree was harvested from the Waara family’s yard on Maple Street in Iron River. On Nov. 22, it was lit in Lansing during the 29th annual Silver Bells in the City celebration. The tree that stood at the center of the event was a blue spruce that was planted in the early 1920s. When the timbermen measured it after cutting it down, they found it was 71 feet long. A sign at the Capitol names the 2013 Silver Bells tree sponsors: Upper Peninsula Power Company, Hilberg Logging, Hebert Construction Forest Service, Piwarski Brothers Logging and High Ball. Many others were involved, including the state Department of Technology Management and Budget, the Michigan Association of Timbermen and the Great Lakes Timber Professionals Association.
