America’s Tallest Christmas Tree
In 1976 Portland Packaging Company strategically designed and crated a huge wooden box (witnesses descried as enough wood to build an eight room house) and then carefully uploaded and anchored the box containing a 47 year old, 105 foot Douglas Fir tree using giant cranes. This was all in preparation for the travel of America’s largest Christmas tree of 1976
After searching for trees in Canada and then six United States, and National Enquirer personally decided on a local tree farm close to Portland, Oregon owned by the International Paper company. the 8,500 pound Douglas Fir tree began a 3,200 mile journey finally arriving in Florida at the headquarters of the National Enquirer after 10 days. The tree was a major exhibit for their Christmas pageant which more than 600,000 Floridians and tourists attended.
A true piece of history that made news headlines all over the nation and represented the hard work of Portland Packaging Company. today, a letter of gratitude signed by Haydon Cameron of the National Enquirer is displayed in our office for making the event possible with Portland Packaging’s “valuable assistance.”
