Red Bank RiverCenter is on its annual hunt for the perfect tree to serve as the downtown centerpiece for the coming holiday season.

Got one you want you don’t need lying around?

The nonprofit commercial-district promotion agency describes its dream specimen as a 15- to 20-foot tall evergreen, preferably a blue spruce.

RiverCenter eats the cost of removal, and places the tree in a corner of the Dublin House courtyard on Monmouth Street, where it’s dressed to the nines.

The donors are recognized at the big tree lighting / outdoor Holiday Express concert scheduled this year for Friday, November 27.
