The 75-foot (23-meter) Norway spruce that will anchor New York City’s holiday festivities as the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree has been cut down in upstate New York and will soon be headed to Manhattan
The tree was donated by Al Dick of Daddy Al’s General Store in Oneonta, developer Tishman Speyer said in a release. It will be trucked to New York City and erected at Rockefeller Center on Saturday.
Details about the tree-lighting ceremony will be released in the coming days, the developers said.
Speyer said the company is ”particularly proud to continue the joyous tradition this year.”
