Rockefeller Christmas tree cut down in Newburgh
Rockefeller Center’s publicist says the 72-foot-tall (22-meter) Norway spruce was cut down Thursday morning at the home of Shirley Figueroa and Lissette Gutierrez in Wallkill.
That’s about 65 miles (104 kilometers) north of New York City.
The tree will be hoisted onto a 115-foot-long (35-meter) flatbed trailer for the trip to Rockefeller Center in midtown Manhattan.
It is set to be erected Saturday, and then be decorated with 50,000 LED lights and a Swarovski crystal star.
The tree will be lit in a televised ceremony Nov. 28 and remain on display until Jan 7.
Throngs of tourists visit the tree each year.
