    This is certainly an alder. If it was not planted there, it might be Alnus viridis ssp. sinuata.

    Yes, jagged leaf edge points to Sitka alder.

    Thanks Ron B and Robert. This tree was growing wild around 1000 m on the ski runs of Hollyburn mountain.

    Snowy mountain slopes typical habitat. However, by far the largest example I have seen was a planted specimen on the UBC campus in Vancouver.
