Norway spruce will adorn Rockefeller Center for holidays

Rockefeller Center announced that a large Norway spruce, currently standing in a town located in the foothills of the Catskill Mountains, will be the tree that sits in the plaza this holiday season.

WNBC in New York City reported that the tree, located in a yard in the city of Oneonta, will be cut down Nov. 10 and will arrive in midtown Manhattan two days later.

On its Twitter account, Rockefeller Center teased a view from the top of the tree.
The tree will be wrapped in more than 50,000 multicolored lights and topped with a Swarovski star, WNBC reported. The tree will be lit on Nov. 30 in a nationwide broadcast as part of NBC’s annual “Christmas in Rockefeller Center” television special.

Rockefeller Center has lit a tree annually since 1933, WNBC reported. The first tree was put up in 1931 when workers were building the plaza.
The tree will remain standing until Jan. 7, WNBC reported.
