One of the most famous Christmas displays in the world will feature a tree from the Capital Region this year. The 2022 Rockefeller Center tree will come from Queensbury.

The 82-foot Norway spruce is believed to be 85 to 90 years old. It will be cut down on Nov. 10 and delivered to Rockefeller Center in New York City on Nov. 12.

The tree will be decorated with 50,000 multicolored lights that will be switched on during a live broadcast, “Christmas in Rockefeller Center,” Nov. 30 on NewsChannel 13.

The tree will be on display until mid-January.
