Tree Song

Interweaving Leanne Simpson’s poetics, song, and stories of the land, while honouring the oldest maple tree in this region of Michi Saagiig Nishnaabeg Territory, “The Oldest Tree in the World” is a love song to the oldest sugar maple in the region. Take 5 minutes and enjoy this video, and how much a tree can mean in someone’s life.

AGM Countdown: 3 weeks

Our Annual General Meeting, coming Saturday, February 29th, is an important event. The business portion reviews the past year of operations for BGWA, looks ahead to the year to come, and also elects Directors to create the volunteer Board who are behind making BGWA happen for another year. In case that’s not enough to entice you, we have also arranged for a great guest speaker for the learning portion of the AGM. C’mon out!! (And feel free to bring along prospective members & interested others.) Click here for details and registration.

BGWA Board Members Kevin Predon and Scott McGregor put together a great event this past Saturday, helping members understand the basics of conifer plantation management, including analysis of density and ways to estimate tree height. Pictures (thanks, Larry Cluchey, for supplying taking photos and supplying captions) have been posted in the event gallery.

If you have an interest in the management of conifer stands (especially if you have one on your property!), you won’t want to miss BGWA’s second workshop… a follow-up to our highly successful hardwood tree-marking event in November. It is coming up this Saturday, February 1st in the afternoon. Click for details, location & registration.

Next BGWA Forestry Workshop: FEB 1st

Building on the success of November’s Tree Marking Workshop (it was registered to capacity!) we have developed an Inventory Assessment and Conifer Stand Density Workshop, to take place the afternoon of Saturday, February 1st. Click here for details and registration.
