Eron Nilson, an artist from Seattle, climbs on the side of the 33 foot Christmas tree made of recycled shopping carts to attach lights at the Bay Street Shopping Center in Emeryville, Calif. on Tuesday Nov. 16, 2010. Southern California artist Anthony Schmidt has been erecting shopping cart Christmas trees for the past 15 years and has brought his art to the Bay Area for the first time. Schmitt and his team of artists will build this festive tree using 1,060 hose clamps, nearly 100 shopping carts, 880 holiday lights and hundreds of ornaments. The Tree Lighting Ceremony will be on Dec. 2. (Laura A. Oda/Staff)
