A Norway Spruce from Wisconsin is gracing Irwin Park. It’s the Homewood-Flossmoor Park District’s third attempt at replacing a 20-year old fir that was blown over in the windstorm in March 2016.

The tree in Irwin Park, which residents affectionately call the Christmas tree, needs to be replaced — again. The tree lost its leaves in recent weeks. It is the second replacement tree that failed to thrive following the loss of a 60-foot tree that was toppled by high winds in March 2016.
The holiday tree at Irwin Park was beautiful for ceremonies in December, but it didn’t survive through the winter. The Homewood-Flossmoor Park Board got the bad news at its Tuesday, May 2, meeting.
