This, the second Pottsville Christmas tree in 2021, was lit earlier this week.

A new Christmas tree is back in the middle of Garfield Square in Pottsville.

Earlier this week, city workers replaced the tree after another in the same spot was recently hit by a motorist.

Red, green, and white lights are wrapped around the new tree, just as they were before the old one was hit. A bright white star adorns the top.
