  • The Rockefeller Tree Arrives! 75 Foot Norway Spruce Graces the Plaza

The tree arrived Saturday from State College, Pennsylvania, CBS New York reports. There it will be decorated with more than 50,000 lights and topped with a Swarovski star.

The huge tree is 75 feet tall and around 50 feet wide.

The stately spruce's 243-mile journey to Rockefeller Center stardom began seven years ago when Erik Pauze, the famed building's head gardener, spotted the tree.

It's a sure sign that the holiday season is getting closer: the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree has arrived in NY!

Last year's tree, a 94-foot Norway spruce from Angie and Graig Eichler in Oneonta, was the second largest ever chosen for the holiday celebration. "It kind of blows my mind in a way". It will be officially lit on November 29th and stay on display until January 7th.

At the end of the season, the spruce will serve another important objective.

After the holiday season, the Rockefeller trees are cut into boards and donated to Habitat for Humanity.
