Christmas at the Ritz- Lake Oconee

Weighs in at 6,000 lbs and measures over 22.5 feet in diameter…what could I possibly be talking about? No, it’s not my weight and waist line after all these recent holiday celebrations. I’m talking about the absolutely gorgeous Christmas tree on display at The Ritz-Carlton Lodge on Lake Oconee. The tree made the trip all the way from Tennessee and I was able to sneak over and snap some photos as it arrived. Standing over 50 feet tall, setting up this holiday display was definitely a job!

Over 50 feet in the air (in a cherry picker) looking down on where the tree will stand

The tree is here!

Base of the tree measured 2 feet

Going up! Gonna need a little more than your average tree stand!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays Lake Oconee

“After the holidays the tree is actually going to be carried out to a very deep part of the lake and sunk to create a natural reservoir for fish here in Lake Oconee,” says Gino Marasco, Director of Sales & Marketing for the hotel.
