This year's Rockefeller Center Christmas tree is getting ready to leave its root in State College and is headed to New York City. On Thursday morning, Rockefeller Center's gardeners and staff cut the 75-foot-tall Norway Spruce from its home on Pikeview Road. The 12-ton giant was carefully lifted and placed on a truck, waiting to begin its journey.
