2019 Rockefeller Christmas Tree Coming from the Hudson Valley
The annual Rockefeller Christmas tree is coming from the Hudson Valley.
This year's tree is a beautiful Norway spruce from a small Orange County Village in Florida, New York. The tree will be raised at Rockefeller Centers plaza on Saturday, November 9th with "some special new features to make the holiday at Rock Center even more magical."
The 87th official lighting of the tree will take place December 4th and be on display through January 17th in New York City. It'll be wrapped with more than 50-thousand multi-colored, energy efficient LED lights and topped with a Swarovski star.
Once the tree comes down, it's donated to Habitat for Humanity, as has been the tradition since 2007. The tree makes 100 boards that are stamped with a tree symbol and the year it was in Rockefeller Center.
This isn't the first time the Rockefeller tree has come from the Hudson Valley. In 2018 another Norway spruce was raised at the plaza from Newburgh in Orange County, New York. Ironically the 2015 Rockefeller tree, that came from Gardiner, New York, ended up in a home in Newburgh.
