A crew ties up the branches Oct. 30 of an 80-foot Norway spruce on Kazo Drive in Shelton in preparation for its trip to Rockefeller Center in New York City.

Here's the tweet Rockefeller Center posted earlier this morning:

The 80-foot Norway spruce comes from Shelton, Conn., which is sending Rockefeller center its tree for the second time in six years.

Mayor Mark Lauretti says furnishing Rockefeller Center with a tree is a big deal for Shelton, which calls itself “the best affordable suburb in Connecticut,” according to an Associated Press story published by the New Haven Register.

The tree-lighting ceremony is scheduled for Dec. 4. The tree will remain on display until Jan. 7, the AP story said, adding that Rockefeller Center has displayed Christmas trees since 1931.

Everything you need to know about attending the tree-lighting is online at Rockefeller Center's website.
