Christmas Tree Lane Tree Adoption Lottery

The El Dorado County Chamber of Commerce will continue the tradition of the
Highway 50 Holiday Trees in 2021. These brightly decorated trees along Highway 50 give much-needed joy to our community and travelers. Now more than ever we need to keep that spirit alive. In order to minimize the risk of exposure in our community changes have been made in our application process including tree decorating/cleanup days. We appreciate your cooperation and patience through this process.

What you need to know:

  1. All applications must be submitted online beginning October 3rd through Oct 29th. No applications will be accepted in person.
  2. One entry per family, organization, or group. If multiples are found ALL entries will be disqualified.
    3. You MUST be an El Dorado County resident to apply.
    4. Applications will be drawn through a randomized system on November 1st
    5. All applicants chosen through the randomized drawing will be notified by email.
    6. There will be a list of backup applicants chosen through the same randomized process. Should the original winner of the drawing decline their tree within 5 days, the backup list will be implemented.
