Totem Pole (behind The Bennachie Centre)
This pole was carved by first nation people from British Columbia (Squamish nation) in 2002 as part of Forestry Commission Scotland’s Treefest 2002 celebrations.
The carved pole is a Douglas fir donated by Balmoral Estate. There are three other totem poles that were created in the same year from the same tree, these can be found at Coluqohhine Hotel, Bellabeg, Strathdon and Chapel of Garioch Primary Schools.
Each pole was carved by local people with help from the first nation carvers using local designs and legends.
