The Norway spruce has been cut from its home in the town of Oneonta, New York and is currently making its way to the heart of New York City.
After having been cut Thursday, Nov. 12, the tree will arrive at the Rockefeller Center by this Saturday, Nov. 14. According to a report from NBC New York, the tree is 75 feet tall, and 11 tons, and was specially picked by the head gardener at Rockefeller Center from a visit to the upstate person’s residence in 2016.
Once the tree goes up in the plaza, a team will begin working on decorating it so it’s ready to shine for the tree lighting ceremony on Wednesday, Dec. 2 at 7 p.m.!
