Saskatchewan’s Largest Tree
In true Saskatchewanian fashion, Blaine Lake invites you to view something large, the largest tree in the province.
This tree has been growing for hundreds of years and is over 5 meters in its circumference. The tree stands nearly 21 metres (68 feet) high at present; the top of the tree was once sheared off by lighting. Saskatchewan’s largest tree is often associated with Samuel J. Popoff, who leased the crown land on which the tree is located.
The Popoff Tree is one of the few remaining giant cottonwoods, as most have fallen to the saw and the axe.
