Yesterday, The Tree arrived yet again without the watchful eyes of David Murbach. Murbach was unfortunately found dead two days before Christmas 2010 at the age of 57 in West Palm Beach, Florida and was the “tree guy” who helped the Rockefeller Center to choose the perfect tree each year using options such as rented helicopters.

When his spirit visit, we hope he will feel proud that The Tree that is being selected is loved by many and is put to good use after the holidays.
