This Is How You Get An 80-Foot Christmas Tree To The Middle Of Manhattan
The iconic Rockefeller Center Christmas tree weighs 10 tons and required a crane and a whole bunch of workers to stand up. It's also a survivor of Hurricane Sandy.
This year's tree, which was hoisted on Wednesday, is over 80 feet tall and 50 feet around.
It was donated by 76-year-old Joe Balku after weathering the hurricane on his New Jersey property.
Workers had to prepare the tree...
And stand it up using a crane.
Then they pushed it into position.
It's going to be decorated with over 30,000 LED lights and topped with a Swarovski crystal star!
