Rockefeller tree to begin trip from State College to NYC

Rockefeller tree to begin trip from State College to NYC”

It took a full six minutes for a chainsaw to cut through the trunk of the 75-foot-tall Norway Spruce tree in State College owned by Jason Perrin.

It will soon look a lot like Christmas in New York City thanks to a tree from Pennsylvania.

Perrin started at GASD in July, bringing 23 years of education experience with more than 17 years serving in administrative leadership roles. The Norway spruce on the property of a home on Pikeview Road in College Township had everything he looks for.

"At first, I didn't believe [Eric]", said Perrin via a press release.

It is the third tree from Pennsylvania to adorn the plaza at Rockefeller Center.

After some convincing of Pauze's credentials, Perrin - himself a graduate of Penn State University and formerly the assistant superintendent of the State College Area School District - wholeheartedly supported donating the tree.

The tree is lowered onto a flatbed waiting on East College Avenue to begin its trip to Rockefeller Center. "I mean it is no small undertaking". Pauze said he spent the last few years grooming and caring for the tree.

In 2010, Erik Pauze, the head gardener at the Rockefeller Center, knocked on Perrin's door, asking if he'd be interested in donating the tree. Pauze of Long Island, New York, noticed the tree when attending his son's high school football game in State College. "I think this is one of the best ways for it to go".

"This year when I saw it I knew this was the year to take it", Pauze said.

The official lighting will take place on November 29 during the live broadcast of "Christmas in Rockefeller Center", which will begin at 7 p.m. and air on NBC starting at 8 p.m.

The 12-13 ton tree will be hoisted onto a trailer and arrive Saturday in midtown where it will be decorated with more than 50,000 lights and topped with a Swarovski star. The tree then will remain lit through January 7.
