QUEENSBURY, New York (WABC) -- There's nothing like the holiday season in New York City and on Thursday, Christmas was one step closer to kicking off in the big apple.
Workers cut down the tree destined for Rockefeller Center today.
This year, the tree is a Norway Spruce coming from Queensbury, NY.
The 82-foot-tall tree will travel over 200 miles to Rockefeller Center.
It's expected to arrive on Saturday. The tree will then be decorated from top to bottom, ahead of the annual lighting ceremony on Nov. 30.
