BOSTON (WHDH) - A 48-foot-tall white spruce made its way from Nova Scotia to the Boston Common, where it will be displayed as a Christmas tree.
Royal Canadian Mounted Police in Nova Scotia posted a video of them escorting the tree down a highway.
The tree arrived in Boston on Thursday and will be lit on Dec. 2.
Nova Scotia donates a tree to Boston every year as a token of gratitude for relief efforts by Bostonians after a munitions ship exploded in Halifax Harbor in 1917, killing or injuring thousands of people.
This year’s tree is being donated by L’Arche Cape Breton, a nonprofit that provides homes and work for people with disabilities
