SFA first published the document "Trees of
Renown" in 1984, as "Honour roll of Notable and Record
Trees and Groves of Saskatchewan". This had 31 records
in 8 categories, and was intended to stimulate interest and
records for future documents.
Since then it has become out-of-print and
out-of-date. This revitalization is more inclusive and partners
with the communities. It is designed for community involvement.
- To provide a place where special tree-related
events and activities will be documented and remembered
- To instil in communities a pride in their
- To provide one place where a record of
trees special to a community can be stored, updated, accessed,
- To promote SFA's goal of forest and environmental
education through the exploration of the eco-regions of Saskatchewan
- To provide information on the role that
trees and forests play in our lives and the values we derive
- To provide information on trees, their
maintenance and growth, and their benefits
SFA has designed and developed the site, and is
making it available on its website. Communities are encouraged
to participate and to submit information about the trees which
are significant to them in their community.
Individuals also are welcome to nominate a record
SFA will monitor records which are submitted, and retains the
right to question submissions which fail the test of "reasonableness".
In other cases we may get back to the nominator for more information.
