This Giving Tree
is not the book by Shel Silverstein but I bet he would of loved this idea.
The Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center is a gift that keeps on giving.
Want to know what happened to last year's 76 foot tall, 12 ton Norway Spruce?
It had an even better second act:
It was turned into lumber and used by Habitat for Humanity to build a home in Connecticut for a Marine vet and his family. They are expected to be moved in just in time to open presents under their own Christmas tree.
This is the 8th consecutive year the Rockefeller tree has been turned into a home by Habitat For Humanity.
I also found another article on the first tree in Rockefeller Center.
Note: I don't remember the year I took the photo of the tree. I use to go into the city every December to see it.
