The Giving Tree

One of the most recognizable holiday landmarks in the United States headed to the Gulf Coast in 2008 to help a hurricane-affected family achieve homeownership.

The Rockefeller Center’s 75th annual Christmas tree was milled in January 2008 and created two-by-fours for an entire Habitat for Humanity house. The lumber was used during May’s Jimmy and Rosalynn Carter Work Project to construct Tracey Davidson’s house in Pascagoula, Miss. “Owning a home was something I wanted to do for my girls,” says the assistant teacher, who was displaced by Hurricane Katrina. “They learn something by seeing me go to work every day. This was the next thing they needed to see me do. They need to see what’s possible.”

Tishman Speyer, the company that owns Rockefeller Center, has similar plans to mill and donate this year’s tree.
