From the Forums: Why Not a Live Tree at 30 Rock?

greenvert has a thought:

I read a New York Times op-ed this weekend arguing that the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree should not be chopped down for transport to NYC- it should be replanted there. During World War II, a live tree was moved to Rockefeller Center every Christmas, and then returned to its original spot after the holidays. Mayor Bloomberg made a big deal this year about using green-friendly lights on the tree, but isn't a live tree so much more green, and really preferable to one that you know is going to die?

What do you think? Can Rockefeller Center make the switch to a live tree? Join the conversation.
