The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Comes From Putnam County!

       As most of you may know, the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center each year is selected from somewhere in the tri-state area (New York – Connecticut – New Jersey).  This year, the tree comes from Putnam County, where I live.  Right down the road, in fact, from Mahopac.  A 74-foot Norway Spruce – 40 feet in diameter and weighing 12 tons (that’s 24,000 pounds, folks – the weight of at least ) was cut from a property on Bullet Hole Road in Mahopac, loaded on a flatbed trailer, and transported 50 miles south to Rockefeller Center.  It was then put in place there, where it will be decorated with 5 miles of lights, and then lit on November 30. 

       So what does this mean?  Head for Rockefeller Center on November 30, or at least watch the tree lighting festivities on television.  Either way, enjoy…
