This year’s Rockefeller Center Christmas tree was chopped down in Pennsylvania yesterday.
The tree belonged to a family that probably loves Christmas more than anyone in America. Here are five things to know about the 2014 Rockefeller Center Christmas tree:
- The tree is an 85-year-old Norway Spruce donated by the Drosdick-Sigafoos, who hail from Hemlock Township, PA.
- Workers cut the tree down with chainsaws Wednesday morning. They mounted it on a trailer and drove it to Manhattan.
- The Drosdick-Sigafoos love Christmas so much that they start playing Christmas music by August or September.
- The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree will be covered with more than 45,000 LED lights and a massive Swarovski star.
- The tree will be on display from December 3 until January 7.
