This year's Rockefeller Center Christmas tree is beginning its journey from upstate New York to Manhattan.

The 94-foot Norway spruce, owned by Angie and Graig Eichler, is set to be cut down Thursday morning in Oneonta. Two massive cranes will help move the tree, the second largest to ever grace Rockefeller Center, onto a flatbed truck. It will then be driven 140 miles to Manhattan, where it's due to arrive on Saturday.
