Christmas Tree for Boston

Christmas is coming and the tree is on the move! Every year the province of Nova Scotia sends a fresh evergreen tree to the city of Boston as a thank you for their help immediately after the Halifax Explosion. I wrote about the relationship between NS and Boston here last year.

As of yesterday the 2015 tree is on the way to the Boston Commons. Bill and Andrea MacEachern of Lorne, Pictou County are the donors of a 49 foot, 72 year old white spruce.

If you are in Boston on December 3rd head over to the Boston Commons for the grand tree lighting event. If you have a tree that you think would be perfect for the 2016 gift head here to find out what they look for.
