Rockefeller Tree Is 85 Ft, But Seattle Still Hits The Sky For Tall Trees

Rockefeller Tree Is 85 Ft, But Seattle Still Hits The Sky For Tall Trees

This week the choice was made of an 85 foot  Noble Fir from PA. as the official Christmas tree for Rockefeller Center in New York.  The tree is now on a flatbed truck en-route for a Dec 3 ceremony.  While 85 feet is impressive for a tree,  might I remind you of Seattle’s tree’s that still reach the sky like nowhere else.  The proof of such tree’s can still be found at O.O. Denny Park in the Kirkland area.  The Google Map photo of a few years ago confirms tree’s that still reach the clouds.  Some of these twigs (click on pic below)  in this photo hit over 250 feet  (Space Needle is 605 ft) -Mark Christopher
