The book tells the story of children living on a farm and the beautiful gigantic spruce tree on their property. The tree is sold and carried away by helicopter to become the Christmas tree at Rockefeller Center. Andy and Ellen get to go to the city and see their tree in all its glory. The story ends happily with a new little spruce tree being planted in place of the large one, and the promise that it too may one day be the most beautiful tree in the world.
