DETROIT — Detroit's Christmas tree has made its debut at downtown's Campus Martius Park.

A crane on Wednesday lifted the more than 60-foot-tall Norway spruce from a flatbed truck to the center of the park.

The Michigan Christmas Tree Association helped locate and secure the tree from Cadillac in Michigan's northern Lower Peninsula. It was provided by anonymous private owners.

The tree will be wrapped in 19,000 multicolored LED lights and adorned with red and silver ornaments. It will take about three weeks to prepare the tree and park for a tree-lighting ceremony scheduled for Nov. 21.

Officials say the display is presented by the DTE Energy Foundation for the 11th consecutive year.
