The city of Valparaiso is making plans to replant a particular spruce tree at Forest Park and give her a new home at the new five-points roundabout. Valparaiso Director of Project and Facility Management Don McGinley says the tree is in the way of a path that's being built, and parks officials want to move the tree to the island at the roundabout rather than lose the tree. McGinley says they're trying to coordinate removing the tree possibly as early as this weekend and transplanting in the middle of next week. The twenty-foot tree is one of the trees that were in downtown Valpo back in the 1980s decorated during the holiday season and later planted in the city parks. The city is now planning to decorate her again this holiday season, after she's moved, in a special tree-lighting and roundabout opening ceremony in late November.  [Photo Courtesy/Valparaiso Redevelopment Commission]
