Augusta, GA -

It's time to say, Oh Christmas tree in downtown Augusta.

City crews were putting the finishing touches on the festive fur at the Augusta Common on Thursday.

The tree is a 40-foot tall Norway Spruce, and it was shipped to Augusta all the way from Erie, Pennsylvania.

The total cost of the tree and transportation was $7,000.

The tree will be officially lit up on Saturday evening during Augusta's Light-Up Spectacular..
