Holiday Trees throughout Google Earth

Now that Google has introduced 3D trees to Google Earth 6, they’ve decided to take it a step further and drop decorated trees in various places around the globe.


According to their blog, these special trees can be found in 14 different locations. However, they’ve only revealed 11 of them. Here are the 11 that they’ve shown:
• Boston Common, Boston, MA
• Skyline Park, Denver, CO
• Grove Plaza, Boise, ID
• Alster Fountain, Hamburg, Germany
• North Capital of Texas Highway, Austin, TX
• Place Du Parvis Notre-Dame, Paris, France
• Old Town Square, Prague, Czech Republic
• Red Square, Moscow, Russia
• Rockefeller Plaza, New York, NY
• Pier 39, San Francisco, CA
• Trafalgar Square, London, England
I tracked down those 11 trees and loaded them into this KMZ file for you. Now, who can find the other three?
Below is the video that shows off the first 11. Leave a comment if you’re able to find any of the others.

  1. “Holiday” trees – how politically correct is that. Can we expect “holiday” cards from Google as well?
    Seasons greetings!

  4. Google “holiday” cards – many a true word … the old style Google search page now has 17 rather nice global card images as the header!

  5. The tree in Trafalgar Square is a CHRISTMAS tree

  6. Wow..this is really nice marketing step from Google.
    They always come up with something really creative.
    All the best Google Earth
