The evergreen arrived with plenty of time to spare before the annual Christmas light switch on, which takes place on Wednesday, November 21.
Nottingham's City Centre will come alive with seasonal festivities like the annual food & drink markets.
After watching the tree go up, George Bentley from Hucknall said:
"I'm looking forward to Christmas to be honest, the decorations are already up and now the tree today, so I'm getting in the mood and looking forward to the big switch on.
Mr Torr, from Sherwood, said: "It's surprising how early it's going up, but we do Christmas well here, so I think we appreciate it being Nottingham people, and besides the tree's pretty good."
