Coming for the first time ever from Maryland, The Norway spruce will arrive in the heart of New York City by tomorrow.
This year’s tree was cut on Thursday, Nov. 11, and will arrive at the Rockefeller Center by next tomorrow, Nov. 13. According to Rockefeller Center, the 85-90 year old tree tops out at 79 feet and weighs a whopping 12-tons! The spectacular Norway spruce was generously donated by a family from Elkton, Maryland.
Once the tree goes up in the plaza, a team will begin working on decorating with 50,000 LED lights so it’s ready to shine for the tree lighting ceremony on Wednesday, Dec. 1!
