Thank you for your interest in donating your tree to Rockefeller Center for the holidays!
The Christmas tree is a tradition that dates back to 1931, when construction workers erected the first on the center plaza block, where the tree is now raised every year. As the stewards of this tradition, we make every effort to maintain the original events important to the spirit of the holiday season at the center.
We have historically selected a Norway Spruce that is in the later years of its life cycle, measuring at least 75 feet tall and 45 feet in diameter. If you have a Norway Spruce you would like us to consider, please complete the form to the left. Any details on the tree, including its approximate age and any related family stories, are greatly appreciated. If we are interested in exploring your tree more closely, we will be in touch.
