COMMENTS

A Xmas tree prime is a prime which is a concatenation of a prime with a single digit, a prime with two digits, a prime with three digits, a prime with four digits etc. By definition, the number of digits is a triangular number (A000217). Leading zeros are not allowed for any of the primes.
