BLOOMSBURG, Pa. (AP) — An 85-foot Norway spruce from central Pennsylvania will serve as Rockefeller Center's Christmas tree this year.

Workers will cut down the 13-ton tree and a crane will hoist it onto a trailer Wednesday morning for the 155-mile journey to midtown Manhattan. It'll be illuminated for the first time on Dec. 3 in a ceremony that's been held since 1933.

The tree is at the home of Dan Sigafoos and Rachel Drosdick-Sigafoos, about three hours west of New York City.

The annual holiday event at Rockefeller Center attracts tens of thousands of people and is watched by millions more on television.
