STATE COLLEGE, Pa. - A tree from Pennsylvania has been selected as Rockefeller Center's Christmas tree.
Rockefeller Center officials on Monday announced on Twitter that they selected a Norway spruce from State College to be the 85th tree to adorn the plaza. Information about the tree's height and owner has not been released.
Rockefeller Center selects trees that measure at least 75 feet in height and 45 feet in diameter, according to its website.
The 2017 tree will be cut down on November 9 and arrive two days later in New York City, where it will be decorated with more than 50,000 lights and topped with a Swarovski star.
The tree will be illuminated on November 29 and remain on display until January 7.
After that, the tree will be milled, treated, and made into lumber for use by Habitat for Humanity.
