2021 Rockefeller Christmas Tree from Maryland

Meet the 2021 Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree!

For the first time in the 80 year history of the tree, the tree is from Maryland. The 79-ft Norway Spruce was cut down on Nov 11 and arrived at Rockefeller Center on November 13.

For the televised tree-lighting ceremony Dec. 1, the 85-year-old tree will be covered in about 5 miles worth of multicolored LED lights and topped with a 900-pound star.

The 12-ton, 46-foot wide tree will be lit from 6 a.m. to midnight each day, and all day on Christmas. On New Year’s Eve, it will be lit from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m. It will stay up until Jan. 16.
