Blasters were very impressed with this interesting wooden sculpture monument which proudly stands on the north side of the Estevan Courthouse Complex in downtown Estevan.

The Saskatchewan Historical marker at the memorial reads as follows:

"The Estevan Soldiers Tree
Dedicated September 10, 2016

This carved Monument is dedicated to the memory of the men and women of the Canadian Armed Forces who have laid down their lives in the service of their country.

The monument also pays tribute to the members of the military who have served, serve today and will serve in the future.

The trees story began as a sapling planted in 1913 on land owned by the Pawson family who operated Pawson's Market Garden south west of Estevan. In 2015 the family donated the 102-year-old tree for the Monument.

The carving of the Monument by Darren Jones of Rimbey, Alberta, began in 2015 and the completed tree was moved to the present location in 2016.

The monument depicts battle scenes and service men and women from World War II. The Queens color and badge of the South Saskatchewan Regiment are proudly displayed in tribute to the contribution of people from southern Saskatchewan.
