Burmis Tree (Alberta Canada)

Burmis Tree in Alberta Canada. Der Baum ist ungefähr 300 Jahre alt.Aufgenommen am 03.08.2008.

The Burmis Tree is a limber pine located in south western Alberta along the Crowsnest Highway and east of municipality of Crowsnest Pass. The tree died in the late 1970s after losing its needles. Its age was estimated to be between 200 and 300 years old. In 1998, it was toppled by wind, however members of local community refused to leave it lying. Efforts were made to fix the tree back up using rods and brackets. In 2004, vandals cut one of the tree's main branches.
