This year's Rockefeller Center Christmas tree will be cut down in Oneonta, New York on Thursday.

It's a 75-foot tall Norway spruce. The tree will be taken down on Thursday and will make its way to Manhattan and is expected to arrive at Rockefeller Center on November 14th.

The tree will be delivered to Manhattan on a flatbed truck.

The tree is being donated by Daddy Al's General store in Oneonta.

Until it's taken down, the tree was placed on a 24-hour watch to make sure no one vandalized it until it is cut down.

This is the 2nd time in five years, the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree was picked from Oneonta.

This is the 88th Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree the tree will be lit for the first time on Rockefeller Plaza on December 2nd. This year, there will be no public access during the tree lighting ceremony due to health and safety concerns because of the COVID-19 pandemic. But, anyone wishing to watch the tree lighting can watch it live on a national broadcast from the comfort of your home on NBC.

Details will be announced at a later time on how you can visit the tree. On Christmas Day, the lights will shine for a full 24 hours.
