The annual Rockefeller Center Christmas tree was cut down Tuesday in Mount Olive, New Jersey.

The 80-foot-tall Norway Spruce will be transported to the city on a 115-foot-long flatbed truck.

The tree weighs 10 tons and is 50 feet in diameter.

It will be lifted into place at Rockefeller Plaza Wednesday.

Crews will then begin the task of hanging 45,000 lights on its branches.

The city's annual Christmas tree lighting will take place on November 28. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
