Fostertown Student Field Trip To Watch The Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree Get Cut Down in Newburgh


Over 130 K-2 students from Fostertown Elementary School took a field trip this morning to witness the majesty of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree as it was being cut and prepared on Rt. 32 in Newburgh for its 75-mile journey to Manhattan.

The Fostertown students were excited to see the massive tree and got to stand in front of it and a specially cut slab from the stump for class photos. Some classes made signs and each student made a tree hat to wear for the trip.

The 72-foot tall Norway Spruce is 12 tons and 45-feet in diameter. It’s being cut from the Wallkill home of Shirley Figueroa and Lissette Gutierrez who handed out “Spruce Cones” from their tree to impressed onlookers.
