UM Today isn’t going to dedicate a lot of time to this story because maybe you, dear reader, have already been to Hafford, Saskatchewan and know about their strange trees. One of Hafford’s tourist attractions is a grove of “Twisted Aspen” that some believe was caused by a near approach of a UFO.
The trees were studied by scientists at the University of Manitoba, and some of the trees were transplanted on our campus for a closer analysis.
Alien fly by, or just evolution? You be the judge.
Research at the University of Manitoba is partially supported by funding from the Government of Canada Research Support Fund.
