It's beginning to look a lot like. stop it.

The 75-foot-tall Norway spruce arrived by truck in midtown Manhattan early Saturday and was lifted into place by a giant crane to its seat of honor next to the iconic ice rink at Rockefeller Plaza.

The first Rockefeller Center Christmas tree was put up in 1931 by workers building the complex during the Great Depression.

A true sign that the holiday season is right around the corner: the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree arrived in NYC Saturday. It was growing at the home of Jason Perrin.

"I have to be honest, when Eric first knocked on my door, I didn't believe him", Perrin said of the moment he met Pauze in 2010.

The 12.5-ton tree, which grew 10 feet since Pauze first saw it, is almost 50 feet wide.

It's set to be decorated with more than 50,000 lights and topped with a Swarovski star. The Rockefeller Center Christmas tree lighting ceremony will be held on November 29, the story said.

NBC will donate the tree to Habitat for Humanity so its lumber can be used to build homes.
