Rockefeller Center Christmas 2006 New York.More info about the gigantic Christmas tree

Before every Christmas the Rockefeller Centre management is looking for the perfect spruce. Every year they get a great deal of letters and pictures sent to them with big spruces, from people who want them to choose their spruce. The Management is travelling every year in person around the US to view the spruce which will represent Christmas. It is not easy to find - there are only one in a million who has the correct size. The spruce that they really want to have is a Norwegian spruce because these will grow to become big and nice. They can be up to 110 years old. These spruces are planted in the US and will grow best by themselves (not in a forest).

Mini-size for the spruce is 65 foot-tall and a least 32 foot-wide. The ultimate high is 98 foot-tall and it shall be so dense that it will not let any light through.

When the spruce is decided it will be transported the whole way to Rockefeller Centre in the middle of the night so it will not disturb the traffic, by the support of the Police. After the spruce have benn decorated with all the lights there is a spectacular opening ceremony for all and Christmas comes to New York.

Some years: The highest spruce ever is the spruce who was standing here 1948 and was an Norwegian spruce from Killingworth approx 108 foot-tall. 1966 they couldn´t find any spruce in the US, but one was found in Ottawa Canada. The first time the spruce was seen in the TV with the lights on was in year 1951. Since year 1971 the spruce is reused after Christmas, among other things it is donated to the scouts who is using it as cover material to their camps. Year 1939 they started with the traditional Christmas songs at the spruce. Year 1941 the spruce was never on with the lights, due to the attack against Pearl Harbour (II World War) and possible lights-out in the city.
