Christmas Tree to Break World Record 

Jonesport hopes to break a holiday record this season.Fishermen on Beals Island want to set the world record for the biggest Christmas tree made of lobster traps.Rockland currently holds the title at thirty-eight feet.Residents in Jonesport plan to stack traps until they hit fifty. The brains behind the operation says the construction started as a competition, but has evolved into something much more important. “I guess we’re doing it to compete with Rockland. Rockland’s got a Christmas tree of their own, so we started out building it to compete with Rockland. And now we’re just doing it to bring the communities together,” said Roy Fagond. The tree will be finished by sunday for a lighting ceremony at Perio Point.
