BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - By Sherea Harris
BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - Christmas is a time of giving and that was exactly the case in Birmingham. Lots of folks are helping to replace Birmingham's Christmas tree in Linn Park.
Officials say it was set on fire by someone trying to steal copper from the electrical box that powered the tree.
The city wasn't going to replace the tree because it would of cost more than 7 grand.
The folks at 98.7 KISS FM heard about the situation and acted quickly to help. The radio station purchased a 32-foot Leyland Cypress from a tree farm in Tarrant to replace the old tree.
Lights and ornaments were also bought by 98.7.
