Branson Christmas Tree Damaged in Storms
A Christmas tree in Branson made of lights won’t be put back up this year after it was destroyed in storms over the weekend.
The tree is formed from 84 strands of LED lights attached to an 80-foot flagpole and is located near the Cox Medical Center Branson campus.
According to Branson city officials, during the storm early Saturday, the Christmas tree and the supporting pole at the roundabout, near downtown Branson, were damaged beyond repair.
City officials are working to get a formal damage assessment and cost estimate for repairs. The City first purchased and put up the tree in 2016.
