Toledo Zoo Christmas tree gets national recognition

The Toledo Zoo has something new to brag about this year.

Not only is it one of the top zoos in the Country, but it's Christmas tree is one of the tallest in the country. The 85-foot Norway Spruce comes in sixth in the Travel and Leisure Magazine's list of the Nation's tallest trees.

Not only is their resident Norway spruce taller than Rockefeller Center's, it's decorated with more lights: some 35,000. To encourage energy conservation, the zoo is using LED lights. They've also rigged two bicycles to the energy grid, allowing visitors to help light the grounds using pedal power. With 120,000 visitors expected, they shouldn't have any problem keeping the lights on.
