The new Saskatoon Tree Tour booklet is a guide to impressive examples of species growing in our city. The new 2015 edition revises SOS Elms' 2004 booklet.
In July 2014 we invited the public to nominate trees for possible inclusion in this update, and we got excellent response. The new guide includes 24 individual trees with fine examples of the basic stalwarts such as American elm, Manitoba maple, and Colorado blue spruce. It also has unique and unusual trees such as Ohio buckeye, Douglas fir, Amur corktree, and black walnut. Chances are you will see some tree species that you have never heard of before and perhaps pick up some ideas for new trees to try in your own yard. Five "tree destination sites" in Saskatoon are also included (Woodlawn Cemetery, Patterson Garden Arboretum, University Campus, Forestry Farm, and Richard St. Barbe Baker Park) along with some historical articles about early Saskatoon tree planting. Check out the article by Paul Hanley in the Star Phoenix.
