The World's Largest Lobstertrap Tree
Rockland, ME - This is the World's Largest Lobstertrap tree. It contains 152 traps built by Brooks Trap Mill in Thomaston, ME. Each trap weighs 40 pounds and has a festive red door. The tree is 38 feet high.
The tree is adorned with 480 feet of garland, 125 lobster buoys, and 3000 twinkle lights. The tree has been a tradition since 2003.
Topping the tree is an 8 foot fiberglass lobster. After the Christmas season, 100 of these traps are auctioned off to a lobsterman, the tickets are $50.
Here I am taking it easy on one of the "chairs" surrounding the tree.
