The city during its centennial year
formed a committee to try to establish a
marketing plan surrounding the city's
claim as "the nation's Christmas Tree"
city. While the nation's tree, General
Grant, is located in the King Canyon
National Forest, each year the Sanger
Chamber of Commerce fills up a bus with
those who want to visit the redwood
forests and place a wreath at the base
of one special tree which is one of the
biggest trees in the world.
