Christmas Trees in Google Earth and Street View

Between Google Earth’s satellite imagery and the thousands of miles of imagery in Street View, there are a lot of Christmas Trees out there for you to find. The folks at Google Sightseeing have rounded up some of the best, including the following.
One of many “world’s tallest lighted Christmas trees”, this one in Blue River, Oregon:

Here is a satellite image of the US National Christmas Tree near the White House in Washington, DC:

There are also a variety of tree farms in their list, including this one in Oregon:

For more, I encourage you to read the full post on the Google Sightseeing blog. For a quick look at the full list, you can also grab their KML file and view them all in Google Earth.

  1. I don’t know if the topic is restricted to living trees or not, but when Street View went down Capitol Ave in Lansing in 2007, it caught Michigan’s State Christmas Tree being erected. The current version got a lot of exposure on national television during the demonstrations over Right to Work. The best view is from the 100 block of East Michigan Ave, but Street View skipped that block, both times they were in Downtown Lansing. By the way, your Preview Post feature is broken. It wipes out the text to be posted.

  3. Ooops! I didn’t think the first one (actually it was the second) went through. I meant the 100 Block of WEST Michigan Ave, by the way.
