Rock­e­feller Cen­ter Christ­mas tree cut in up­state New York

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - OBITUARIES -

This year’s Rock­e­feller Cen­ter Christ­mas has be­gun 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 140mile 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.

Last year’s Rock­e­feller Cen­ter tree, a 68-foot Nor­way spruce, came from the Gardiner property of Al­bert Asendorf and Nancy Puchal­ski.

Lum­ber from that tree later was used for a Habi­tat for Hu­man­ity home in New­burgh.
