Sunset at the Burmis Tree by Vickie Emms

Art Prints

Available to buy on…

This famous old tree stands at Burmis, Alberta, Canada. It’s known as the Burmis tree. I love having the opportunity of taking it’s photo, specially at sunset.

One of the most photographed trees in Western Canada – the Burmis tree in the Crow’s Nest Pass, is named after the coal mining town of Burmis. The limber tree, which marks the eastern edge of the Rocky Mountains in Alberta, has been around for 700 years. The Burmis tree died in the late 1970s and in 1998 actually toppled over. The people of the Crow’s Nest Pass propped the tree back up.
