Lost L.A.: The Christmas tree nailed to the wall

December 4, 2010 |  6:00 am

Lost-la-christmas-tree Your eyes do not deceive. That is, indeed, an off-the-wall Christmas tree. Our Lost L.A. columnist Sam Watters tells the story behind the world's thinnest spruce:

"Curtis picked up branches in backyards and along back roads in L.A. At their modest ranch house, paneled with patriotic knotty pine, he and his wife attached a board to the living room wall. They nailed boughs to the plank, long branches at the bottom, short at the top. A string of lights, some colored balls and metal tinsel, easily stored in the attic closet, completed the half-a-tree vignette."

You can read the rest of the tale in Watters' latest column.
