Rockefeller Christmas tree cut down at upstate NY home

WALLKILL, N.Y. (AP) — The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree has been cut down in upstate New York and is being readied for transport to Manhattan where it will be erected this weekend.

Rockefeller Center’s publicist says the 72-foot-tall Norway spruce was cut down Thursday morning at the home of Shirley Figueroa and Lissette Gutierrez in Wallkill.

The tree will be hoisted onto a 115-foot-long flatbed trailer for the trip to Rockefeller Center in midtown Manhattan.
