If you’ve ever driven down Highway 3 through the Crowsnest pass, you would’ve passed the famous Burmis tree.  It is a lone sentinel on a rocky berm along the north side of the highway.  The Burmis Tree is said to have lived for more than 700 years before dropping its last needle in the 1970s.  Today it is a symbol of resilience and has become one of southern Alberta’s most photographed natural historic landmarks.

Little Monkey trees are stunning pieces of craftsmanship. From the elaborate shape to the natural beauty of metal, our trees fit any decor. They can be modern, rustic, industrial or country. It is not often that you see hand-tempered and hand-sanded steel art. The result is each piece is unique in its blues, purples and orange colour pattern and the grinding marks catch light in varying ways. All our trees are powder coated clear to protect the steel. Welded brackets on the back of the trees make them easy to hang and set them off the wall by 1/2” casting interesting shadows behind. If you are looking for unique, local, hand-made art then this is it!
