For the seventh consecutive year the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree will be milled and its lumber used in the building of a Habitat for Humanity home.

The 76-foot-tall Norway spruce will return to its home state of Connecticut and be used by Habitat for Humanity of Coastal Fairfield County to help build exterior and interior walls for a home in the city of Bridgeport.

Rockefeller Center’s Christmas tree was first donated to Habitat for Humanity in 2007. Lumber from previous trees has been used in the construction of homes in Pascagoula, Miss.; Stamford, Conn.; Newburgh, N.Y.; Philadelphia, Pa.; Morris, N.J.; and New York City.
