A 74-foot Norway spruce from Pennsylvania has been hoisted into place at Rockefeller Center in Manhattan for its starring role in a big Christmas tradition.

Workers accomplished the task with a crane on Friday.

The tree was cut down Wednesday in Mifflinville, Pa.

It will be decorated with 30,000 multicolored LED lights. It will take five miles of wire to cover the tree, which has a girth of 46 feet at its lowest limbs.

The lighting ceremony will be held Nov. 30. The lights will stay on until Jan. 7. After that, it will be milled into lumber for Habitat for Humanity.

Rockefeller Christmas Tree Arrives In Manhattan

NEW YORK -- If the chilly weather isn't enough of a clue, Friday brings another sign the holiday season is fast approaching.

Rockefeller Center 's Christmas tree is in Manhattan and it's due to be set in its place later Friday morning, with the help of a crane.

NBC weatherman Al Roker rode the tree into Rockefeller Center during the Today Show on Friday morning.

The 84-foot-tall tree measures 48 feet around. It comes from Joe and Judy Rivnyak's yard in Shelton , Connecticut .

The tree-lighting ceremony is planned for November 28.



Christmas Tree Arrives At Rockefeller Center

POSTED: 9:41 am EST November 9, 2006

An 88-foot Norway spruce from a western Connecticut home arrived in Manhattan Friday to become this year's Rockefeller Center Christmas tree.

"It is hugely exciting and it's huge news in the neighborhood," said Rob Kinnaird, 58, an antique car restorer who remembers watching the tree grow outside his window as a child in Ridgefield, a community of about 22,000 people 70 miles southwest of Hartford.

The Kinnairds even moved the driveway four times over the years to accommodate the growing branches.

"I have pictures of my mom holding me out by the tree," said Kinnaird, adding that a stint at Rockefeller Center will be a perfect end for the tree.

The 9-ton tree is 45 feet in diameter. It was hauled on a flatbed truck to Manhattan, where workers will start putting it up at Rockefeller Plaza on Friday.

Helicopters are used to scout for New York City's most famous Christmas decoration. Characteristics such as width, tree density and height, which must be at least 75 feet, are used to make the final selection.

Connecticut has had its share of trees at Rockefeller Center. In 1999, a 100-foot Norway spruce, the largest in the center's history, was plucked from the yard of a Killingworth couple. And in 2003, a 79-foot-Norway spruce in Manchester was cut down for the big holiday celebration.

The tree will be decorated with at more than 30,000 lights and topped with a Swarovski crystal star.

It will be lighted during a ceremony Nov. 29. The two-hour event will be broadcast nationally on NBC. The tree will remain in place until Jan. 8, continuing an annual tradition that started in 1933.

Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree 

To Be Chopped Down In N.J.

A 74-foot-tall Norway spruce from Wayne, N.J., will be this year's Rockefeller Center Christmas tree, organizers announced early Wednesday.

The tree, which weighs nine tons and has a 42-foot wing span, is scheduled for chopping at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday.

It will then be loaded onto a 115-foot-long trailer and transported to Manhattan. The tree, Rockefeller Center's 73rd, will be hoisted into place next to the ice skating rink at Rockefeller Center on Thursday morning.

Last year's tree, a 71-foot-tall Norway spruce, was found on the property of a Suffern, N.Y., family.

The first Rockefeller Center tree was put up in 1931 by workers helping to build the complex, and the first formal tree-lighting ceremony took place in 1933.
