Burmis Tree In Better Times


Burmis Tree In Better Times

 

The Burmis Tree, aka The Twisted Tree, stands at the eastern entrance to the Crowsnest Pass in Southern Alberta. It died in the late 1970’s, so was already 8-10 years dead when I made this photograph. Since taking this image in 1986 or 7 the poor tree has been blown over in a windstorm and vandalized. Both times local supporters helped repair the damage and prop up the branches. It is said to be the most photographed tree in Alberta, possibly in Canada.
