Pa. Christmas tree headed to New York City

The tree arrived Saturday from State College, Pennsylvania, CBS New York reports.

It's a sure sign that the holiday season is getting closer: the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree has arrived in NY! It was raised off a trailer and hoisted into place by a crane.

Once in NY, the tree will be covered in more than 50-thousand multi-colored LED lights and crowned with a Swarovski star.

The 85th tree to adorn the plaza is from Pennsylvania this year.

The tree is a 75-foot Norway Spruce that weighs about 22,000 pounds.

Bitcoin's forced split was scheduled to occur on or about November 15 following months of heated dispute about scalability. So again if trading these markets one clearly needs to understand adapt to the risk when trading a highly volatile market.

The first Rockefeller Center Christmas tree was put up in 1931 by workers building the complex during the Great Depression.

A large spike was driven through the trunk to help keep it in place in the plaza.

The lighting is scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 29, and the tree will remain on display until Sunday, Jan. 7, 2018.

After the holiday season, the Rockefeller trees are cut into boards and donated to Habitat for Humanity.
