ONEONTA – Graig and Angie Eichler’s 94-foot-tall Norway spruce is down and Rockefeller-bound.
“It’s such a great day,” said Angie Eichler. “A lot of people came out, and we’re having a lot of fun.”
Nearly 200 people gathered this morning on the lawn of VF Supply Co., Browne Street and Country Club Road, to watch the tree come down. At 8 a.m., the chainsaw revved up, and by 8:30, the tree was high in the air above the crowd before being slowly lowered onto a truck.
The truck will deliver the tree to the plaza in the early morning hours of Saturday, Nov. 12.
