NORTH KINGSTOWN â€“ If all goes according to plan, the massive pine in Updike Park that has served as the town Christmas tree for many years will make its final appearance in the spotlight this holiday season.
And, in the evergreen equivalent of â€śAll About Eveâ€ť, a gorgeous ingĂ©nue is waiting in the wings.
â€śWe have been talking about trying to put a better tree in Updike Park,â€ť says public works director Phil Bergeron. The old tree has become â€śvery tall, thinned outâ€ť to the point that the entire thing â€ścanâ€™t be lit.â€ť
