Depoe Bay Aims for
Weather-Resilient Christmas Trees


Depoe Bay, OR, December 5, 2017 –  Two unique, hand-crafted Christmas Trees, designed to withstand  the harsh winter storms of the Central Oregon Coast now grace Whale Park on Route 101 in downtown Depoe Bay and Dock One in Depoe Bay Harbor.

“Thanks to the talents, creative thinking and willingness to go the extra mile by members of our City crew,” commented City Superintendent Brady Weidner, “we are proudly displaying two trees which we believe will be able to better survive the high winds and hard rain of local winter storms.”

Harbor Master Kody Robinson crafted the trees from half-inch rebar and cold rolled steel and LED rope and bulb lights.  Crew member Paul Carver actually drove to Portland to get the LED lights in time to finish the tree for last weekend’s tree lighting, sponsored by the Depoe Bay Chamber of Commerce.  The tree was put in place and the park prepared for visitors by Carver, Robinson, and crew members Jesse Gary, Chip Walls and Gary Walls.

“Come and see our great trees,” said Mayor Barbara Leff.  “Then visit our shops for creative Christmas giving and stop for a bite to eat at our delightful restaurants as you get ready for a great holiday season.”
