Crews cut down the 10-ton tree Wednesday at the Easton, Conn. home of fifth-grade teacher Maria Corti.
On Thursday, it was raised into place as dozens before it, standing in the famous skating rink and a gilded statue depicting Prometheus bringing fire to mankind.
The lighting ceremony is Dec. 2.
The first Rockefeller Center Christmas tree was put up in 1931 by workers building the complex during the Depression. The first official tree lighting there was in 1933.
Last year's tree, also a Norway spruce, came from Hamilton, N.J.
