Nov. 12 (UPI) — The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree arrived in midtown Manhattan on Saturday.

The 14-ton, 82-foot-tall Norway Spruce is estimated to be between 85 and 95 years old.

The tree was transported to Manhattan on a 115-foot trailer after being cut down in Queensbury, N.Y., on Thursday.

Neil Lebowitz, who donated the tree, drove a spike into the trunk before it was lifted into place by a crane at Rockefeller Center.

The Christmas tree will be adorned with approximately 50,000 multicolored LED lights and a 900-pound Swarovski star with 70 spikes covered in 3 million crystals.

The lights will be turned on during the annual Rockefeller Center tree lighting ceremony on Nov. 30. The event will be broadcast live on NBC.
