    i had a question. Does anyone know where the Christmas tree will be from this year? I live in Newburgh ny and heard it was coming from here but I also heard it’s coning from some place else. Can anyone confirm because if it is I live like 5 min away from where they are cutting it down from.

    With all due credit to Google ... here's the answer. Wallkill, NY. 72 feet tall, 12 tons.

    I can answer for christmas87 as I also formerly lived in that area. Yes Wallkill is close to Newburgh!

    Thanks for the post Holiday. Yes Newburgh is close to Wallkill. I think they said town of newburgh because it’s almost borderline Wallkill well at least that area of Wallkill. It’s close enough to drive to. My wife wants to take a picture there before it get cut down then actually go to Rockefeller center and take a picture in front of it lit. Basically a before and after.

    I’m not really a big fan of the show or the events leading up to the lighting of the tree but I’ll put it on at the end when they are getting ready to light it. and of course going to see it.

    I also love to hear about where the tree comes from - sometimes it comes from Canada :) The story of how they find it is always a fun one too (Helicopters, right?). Thanks for the update!
