A Madison Tradition-University Avenue Holiday Trees

University Avenue Holiday Trees

This great Madison tradition was started by the late Dr. Jack Kammer of the Center of Cosmetic Dentistry in Madison. He planted the 228 trees back in 1986. By 1995 they were large enough to decorate and they created a sensation on University Avenue on Madison’s West side.  He passed away May 13, 2010. The lights continue though, put up by volunteers.  Get the latest updates on Facebook.

I must go back this year, I took this picture two years ago (11-28-11), before I had my new camera.

  1. I remember the year someone took down most of the purple lights, at a time they were very hard to find, and people from all over helped supply or buy new stings of purple.
