ELKTON, MD—For the first time ever, the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree will be coming from Maryland this year.
The 79-foot Norway Spruce was donated by a family in Elkton.
The giant tree will be cut on November 11th and is set to arrive at Rockefeller Center on November 13th.
For more than eight decades, the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree has stood as a holiday beacon for New Yorkers and visitors alike.
While the lights, decorations, and stars have changed through the years, visiting the tree remains a quintessential New York experience.
