The biggest lego Christmas tree in the southern hemishere

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:25 pm on 25 November 2016

It's taller than a two-story house, weighs 3.5 tonnes and took more than 1200 hours to build. It's a Christmas tree and it's made of LEGO. The giant tree is made of more than 500,000 LEGO bricks, making it the largest of its kind in the southern hemisphere.

Ryan McNaught is a LEGO professional - and is known as the Brick Man. He uses lego to create sculptures, historical dioramas, architectural &engineering models, as well as mosaics. And he's in New Zealand helping build the big tree.
