The tree is 23 meters high and weighs over 12 tonnes. At its top is a star with 25,000 Swarovski crystals and its decoration includes 50,000 lights.
The tradition of deploying a huge Christmas tree on Rockefeller Plaza dates back to 1933. Then the tree was decorated with paper garlands and red berries.
