Rockefeller Center's 75-foot Christmas tree arrives in New York City

New York's famous Christmas tree has arrived and been put in place at the Rockefeller Center.

Christmas green decoration was donated to the municipality of NY, a resident of Pennsylvania Jason Perrin, on whose land it grows.

The 75-foot, 13-ton Spruce tree was chopped down in State College, Pennsylvania in the morning.

But it also could threaten laws passed in Republican-leaning states that impose certain requirements on abortion clinics. The Supreme Court on Monday agreed to hear two cases on the limits of the First Amendment's protection of free speech.

The 12.5-ton tree, which grew 10 feet since Pauze first saw it, is almost 50 feet wide.

Eventually, the tree will be dressed in holiday finery of over 50-thousand lights. There it will be decorated with more than 50,000 lights and topped with a Swarovski star. It will be officially lit on November 29th and stay on display until January 7th.

At the end of the season, the spruce will serve another important goal. After it's taken down, it will be cut into lumber which will be donated to Habitat for Humanity. The first six-meter Christmas fir-tree appeared in NY 84 years ago and since then, every year, a festive symbol became higher and higher.
