Each year, the selected spruce is attached to a 280-ton crane that holds the tree's full weight when the cut is completed. The tree is then placed on a custom-made, telescoping trailer which takes a crew of 15-20 people to get the entire job done. This year's tree was transported yesterday to Rockefeller Center in New York City, USA for lighting on November 28.
