The 2019 Nova Scotia Tree for Boston has been picked out and it's a beauty!

The 45-foot white spruce is being provided by Desmond Waite and Corina Saunders of Trenton, Pictou County, according to the Tree for Boston's Facebook page.

The tree is an annual gift to Boston from Nova Scotia as a way of showing gratitude to the city for their help after the 1917 Halifax Explosion.

An official tree cutting ceremony will be held Nov. 13 before a send-off event on Nov. 15. The tree will then make its trek to Massachusetts where it will be lit on Boston Common Dec. 5.
