It was hoisted onto a trailer and expected to arrive in NY on Saturday. It was cut down in State College, Pennsylvania and is the 85th tree to be displayed at the Rockefeller Plaza during the holiday season.

The tree, which is 50 feet in diameter, will be the 86th to grace the Plaza for the annual weeks-long display and the third from Pennsylvania.


This year's Rockefeller Center Christmas tree made its way to New York City on Saturday.

Now for a few days, workers will decorate the tree with Christmas garlands.


It took an extra long truck, a huge team and a crane to move the almighty Christmas tree into place.

The tree will be decorated with more than 50,000 multi-colored, energy-efficient LED lights and a Swarovski Star. The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting ceremony will be held on November 29, the story said. It will then be donated to Habitat for Humanity to be transformed into lumber for building homes.
