Sri Lanka has unveiled a towering Christmas tree, claiming to have surpassed the world record for the tallest artificial Christmas tree.

 Tallest-Xmas-tree

The 73-meter tree, built in capital Colombo, Galle Face is 18 metres taller than the current record holder, organizers said. The tree’s steel-and-wire frame is covered with a plastic net decorated with natural pine cones, 600,000 LED bulbs and topped by a 6-meter-tall shining star.

Galle Face is one of Colombo’s most popular promenades, and people from all over the island of Sri Lanka had been expected to come and admire the tree.

Mangala Gunasekara, chief organizer said that their tree beat the existing Guinness record held by a Chinese firm that put up a 55-meter tree-like tower in the city of Guangzhou last year.

Sri Lanka’s claim is subject to confirmation from Guinness World Records, which said it has received an application from the organizers and that it is waiting for evidence.
