Remember When? This towering poplar tree sits in the back yard of Nellie Finnell’s home at the corner of 51st Street and 53rd Avenue Ponoka. The ladies at the Fort Ostell Museum did a little research and discovered that the tree was planted in 1940 at the new family home of automotive dealer, town councillor, and active community supporter and entrepreneur Guy (Jack) Wilders. My question is, is this 78 year old majestic popular the oldest and largest surviving tree in the community? Maybe our readers can give us some answers? Photo courtesy of the Fort Ostell Museum
