Ken Duffey of Athens-Clarke County Landscape Management gets ready to cut down the Athens community Christmas tree in Danielsville, Ga., Monday, Dec. 4, 2017. This year's tree, a red cedar, was donated by George and Heather Hill of Danielsville. In 2004 when tornadoes spawned from Hurricane Ivan hit the Danielsville area large amounts of trees were damaged, but this year's Community Christmas tree was left unharmed after the storm.
