Conn. sends Christmas tree to Rockefeller Center

SHELTON, Conn. - For the second time in six years, the city of Shelton, Conn. is sending a Christmas tree to New York City's Rockefeller Center for the annual holiday display.

Workers cut the tree down earlier today and have sent it on its way by tractor-trailer to New York City.

Shelton Mayor Mark Lauretti says furnishing Rockefeller Center with a tree is a big deal for the town, which calls itself "the best affordable suburb in Connecticut."

The tree-lighting ceremony is scheduled for Dec. 4. The tree will remain on display until Jan. 7.
