The white fir, weighing 6,000 pounds, completed its 540 mile journey of Almanor Lake in Northern California Monday afternoon. It was hoisted into place by a 40-ton crane on Hollywood Boulevard.
The COVID-19 pandemic has postponed the holiday season in Hollywood for 2020 and this year sees the return of the two L. Ron Hubbard’s Winter Wonderland and the Hollywood Christmas Parade.
THE. Ron Hubbard’s Winter Wonderland opens on the night of the Hollywood Christmas Parade (28 november) and provides a vacation setting for families to enjoy and capture timeless memories throughout the season.
Since 1983, the giant Christmas tree and its winter decor have delighted visitors and Hollywood community. It carries Mr. Hubbard’s universal message: “The day we can fully trust each other, there will be peace on Earth.”
This year’s tree is a 25-year-old, 6000-pound white fir, native to the high mountains of the north. California and from the south Oregon. The trees in Winter Wonderland are sustainably harvested using ‘stump culture’. It is the practice of cutting down a tree leaving the stump with whorls of lower branches. Up to four trees will regenerate in its place.
The annual Winter Wonderland tradition is made possible each year by Friends of L. Ron hubbard and the Church of Scientology of the Western United States For more information, contact [emailÂ protected], the L. Ron Hubbard Winter Wonderland Facebook page, or the Scientology Newsroom.
