Rockefeller Center Christmas tree cut in upstate New York

ONEONTA, N.Y. (AP) — This year’s Rockefeller Center Christmas tree is beginning its journey from upstate New York to Manhattan.

The 94-foot Norway spruce in Oneonta was cut down Thursday morning and loaded on a truck. The spruce will make the 140-mile trip to Manhattan and is expected to arrive Saturday.

The tree’s 50,000 lights will be switched on during a live television broadcast Nov. 30.

The tree was on the property of Angie and Graig Eichler.
