Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Arrives in NY

Posted: Updated:

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas in New York City as the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree arrived Saturday.
 
The 75-foot Norway spruce came from Pennsylvania this year, and weighs around 22,000 pounds. A large spike was driven through the trunk of the tree, and a crane was needed to hoist it into place.
 
This is the 85th tree to grace the Rockefeller Plaza during the holiday season. It will be decorated with more than 50,000 lights and topped with a Swarovski star.
 
The tree lighting ceremony will take place on November 29th and will remain on display until January 7th of next year. It will then be donated to Habitat for Humanity to be transformed into lumber for building homes.
