Flanders tree headed to Rockefeller Center

Dailyrecord.com sheds some light on the Flanders tree headed to Rockefeller Center. This year’s beautiful Rockefeller Center tree made its journey from Flanders, NJ after surviving the high winds of Hurricane Sandy. The 80 year-old Norway spruce arrived in the Big Apple yesterday and will be decorated to the nines for the November 28 tree lighting ceremony. Joseph Balku, 76 of Flanders who donated the tree which stands 80 feet tall, 50 feet wide and weighs 10 tons said, “I’m glad everyone came out to see the tree. It is beautiful and really should be seen by everyone.” And it surely will be as the tree receives close to half a million visitors each year and is seen by millions more on television. The 80th Annual Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony takes place on Wednesday, November 28, 2012 from 7-9 p.m. If you plan to attend this festive event be sure to bundle up and get there early! This beautiful tree will remain lit for all to see until January 7, 2013.
