The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Arrives!

Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Is Hoisted Into Place For The Holiday Season

As most of you may know, the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center each year is selected from somewhere in the New York area. This year, the tree comes from Bloomsburg, in central Pennsylvania. An 85-foot Norway Spruce – 13 tons and 90 years old – was transported the 155 miles to Rockefeller Center. It was then put in place with a crane, and will be decorated with 45,000 multi-colored LED lights, topped with a 9½ foot Swarovski star, and then lit on December 3.

So what does this mean? Head for Rockefeller Center on December 3, or at least watch the tree lighting festivities on television. Either way, enjoy…

    Great blog post! At the end of the holiday season, the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree is milled and the lumber is used to build a Habitat for Humanity house.
