Although it doesn’t pay for the tree, Rockefeller Center does cover the costs for harvesting and transporting the tree to the Center. When the holidays are over, a mill turns the tree into lumber for use in the construction of a Habitat for Humanity home. The wood sports a “Rockefeller Center Tree” stamp as a way of commemorating the tree’s significance. The tree for 2017 is an 80-year-old, 75-foot-tall Norway spruce from State College, Pennsylvania.
