Macy’s Picks Mabelton Tree

A tree in Mableton will be this year’s Macy’s Great Tree. Atlanta’s most recognized Christmas tree was cut on Nov. 8, and transported to Macy’s at Lenox Square in preparation for the 65th Annual Great Tree Lighting. The Tree is from the home of the late James Thomas (J.T.) Green and Freddie Green, J.T.’s widow. The family includes her three sons, Tommy, Perry and Rick; her daughters-in-law, Janet, Patsy and Kathy; seven grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
