Russia has chosen the main Christmas tree
"The title of Kremlin beauty this year was awarded to a 25-meter spruce from the Fryanovo village near Moscow. The age of the tree is 84 years, the diameter of the trunk is 60 centimeters," the organization said in a press release.
According to Roslesinforg, as a rule, 50-70 trees become applicants for the main Christmas tree of the country every year.
The main requirements are a smooth and non–curved trunk, an even cone-shaped crown with not too thick needles, so as not to shade the garland and Christmas decorations.
Another condition is a convenient location so that heavy machinery for transportation can easily pass to the tree.
