Members of the former Ontario Shade Tree Research Laboratory commemorated the 10-year passing of Erik Jorgensen with the planting of an ironwood in the courtyard of the Earth Science Centre of U of T.
The event was MC'd by Michael Rosen with David Balsillie and Stoney Baker speaking. The poster was hung in the Centre near the “Wood Wall” where 12 new inductees were celebrated after the Jorgensen event. There were also commemorations to a few who had passed in the last few years (this was the first event post-COVID) for forestry including Prof. D. N. Roy (himself part of the Shade Tree Lab) and Amelia Veneziano, a long time Administrator at the Faculty as well as retirement announcements during a reception at the Faculty Club after. It was also an opportunity to understand where forestry fits in the Daniels Faculty – it is now called the Institute of Forests and Conservation, Sandy Smith is the Director. Thank you to Michael Rosen for the submission.
