Portions of Milwaukee Christmas tree to be repurposed, auctioned off

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- You know the Christmas season is over when they take down the official city tree in downtown Milwaukee.

It happened Wednesday morning, Jan. 11 in front of Fiserv Forum. 

This was the first year the tree stood in Deer District.

In case you're wondering, the tree is not just being dumped into some landfill. 

The branches have been chipped and parts of the trunk will be carved into artwork and auctioned off by Black Husky Brewing to raise money for tree planning projects in Milwaukee.
