The executive director of the providence foundation told me that she calls the official start start to christmas.

There are a number of different trees to look at.

Just like this one.

This one is created by ian lambert.

He has been decorating trees here for the more than 16 years and he might never stop.

He trees is all about gnomies.

He said he put this tree together in about a week in a half.

Honestly i just hope to raise as much money as possible for them but i do it because it's good fun for the family to help somebody somewhere ian's tree is called gnomies the guardians of christmas.

He says its a history piece that gnomies used to protect the forest and the christmas spirits.

Ian's tree is one of many elaborate trees that you will see when you come down here starting tomorrow night.

Coming up tonight on newswatch 12 at 6 -- i'll introduce you to two more tree designers and there reasons why they want to give back.

Live in medford.
