This year’s Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree is from Ridgefield, Connecticut, not too far from my home town. About eight years ago a representative from Rockefeller Center contacted Robert Kinnaird to inquire about the large Norway Spruce next to his driveway. They’ve been keeping track of his tree since then and this year its time came. The tree was bundled up and attached to a giant crane before it was cut and transported to New York. Kinnaird’s parents bought the house in 1946 and the tree was there back then, large, but not as large as it is now. The official measurement from Rockefeller Center is 88 feet high by 56 feet wide.
