2015 Rockefeller Center Christmas tree arrives in NYC

It’s the most wonderful time of the year: The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree has arrived in New York City.

The 10-ton, 78-foot spruce was raised and put in its place at Rockefeller Center ahead of the tree lighting on Dec. 2.

The tree will stay up until Jan. 7, at which point it will be given to Habitat for Humanity as lumber.
