ALBANY, N.Y.— Workers are cutting down the second of two trees that will be on display outside the New York state capitol for the holidays.

The 40-foot-tall blue spruce being cut down in Rome on Monday will be displayed at the park on the east side of the Capitol.

A 50-foot-tall blue spruce was cut down Thursday in an Albany suburb and transported to the Empire State Plaza.

Lights on both donated trees will be turned on during a celebration on Dec. 3.
