Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Arrives
Christmas green decoration was donated to the municipality of NY, a resident of Pennsylvania Jason Perrin, on whose land it grows.
The 12-ton, 75-foot Norway spruce came from State College.
The stately spruce's 243-mile journey to Rockefeller Center stardom began seven years ago when Erik Pauze, the famed building's head gardener, spotted the tree. It was cut down Thursday morning before a horde of camera-ready spectators.
"I have to be honest, when Eric first knocked on my door, I didn't believe him", Perrin said of the moment he met Pauze in 2010.
The giant Rockefeller Center tree arrived Saturday. "It kind of blows my mind in a way".
After being adorned with more than 50,000 multi-colored lights and crowned with the iconic Swarovski star, the tree will be illuminated for the first time during a live television broadcast on Wednesday, Nov. 29.
Americans, as a young nation, particularly revered traditions, so as usual, at the end of the holidays, the seventh of January spruce sawn into planks, will be built housing for the poor residents of the city.
After that, the tree will be donated to the nonprofit Habitat for Humanity to be used as lumber for home building, according to event's webpage.
