Good Earth Plants Creates San Diego’s Favorite Christmas Tree
Two-thousand lights & hundreds of decorations adorn eco-friendly tree at Horton Square Ice Rink

Where: Horton Square Outdoor Ice Rink, Broadway Circle, San Diego

When:  Set-up during the week of November 22, 2010
              Formal tree lighting ceremony on Tuesday, November 30, 7:30 p.m.

Who:   Jim Mumford, President and Founder, and the staff of Good Earth Plant Company

What:  For the eighth straight year, Jim Mumford and the staff of Good Earth Plant Company will assemble and decorate San Diego’s favorite Christmas tree at the downtown ice rink at Horton Square, next to the Horton Plaza Shopping Center.

It's San Diego’s own version of the Rockefeller Center ice rink. The downtown ice rink at Horton Square has quickly become one of our city’s favorite holiday traditions. The ice rink opens on November 18 and closes on January 11, 2011. Proceeds from tickets to the rink benefit Rady Children's Hospital.

Mumford and Good Earth Plant Company have been in charge of the Christmas tree at Horton Square since 2002. The original trees were 40-foot tall live trees harvested in Julian. The tree is now a more ecologically friendly artificial tree which can be used each year.

It takes a full three days starting Monday, November 22 to decorate the 25-foot tall tree with two-thousand lights, and hundreds of ornaments. An articulated boom lift is brought in to help the team of four people to complete the project.

Due to being outside for two months, even in San Diego’s mild weather the ornaments take a beating and need to be replaced and or freshened up each year. The process starts in mid-October at Good Earth Plants with everything being pulled from storage, and examined, reconstructed, restored or replaced. This year’s d├ęcor features bows, ribbons, decorative sprays and bouquets of replica red poinsettias.

While the ornaments are being worked on the tree itself gets unpacked and constructed. All hardware is examined to make sure the tree goes together securely before it is transported to Horton Square.
