At 82 feet tall, 50 feet wide and weighing 14 tons, an approximately 90-year-old pine tree was announced as this year's Christmas tree at the iconic New York landmark.

Through social media, Rockefeller Center showcased the tree with all its features. It will arrive from Queensbury in Upstate New York to the city on Nov. 12, according to the New York Post

Similarly, outlet reported that this year's decoration will receive a "dazzling treatment" like last year, using a star at its point made of 3 million Swarovski crystals, designed by architect Daniel Libeskind in 2018.

After its official unveiling on Nov. 30th, the tree will be lit every day from 6 p.m. to 12 a.m. On Christmas Day, the tree will be lit for 24 hours and on New Year's Eve from 6 a.m. to 9 p.m.

It is unknown at this time how long the tree will stand, but details will be announced in the coming weeks.

The iconic Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree tradition dates back to 1933, when the first pine tree was decorated by Rockefeller Center fellows, who pooled their money to buy a 20-foot-tall balsam fir and decorated it with homemade garlands made by their families. The tradition has since endured for eight decades as a catalyst for the holiday spirit in and around the Big Apple.

To watch the tree lighting ceremony interested parties can tune in to "Christmas at Rockefeller Center" on NBC on Nov. 30, at 8p.m.
