Legacy of Trees

Heritage House is now featuring Legacy of Trees on its website. And my very short bio is on Heritage House’s author page for me (headshot photo credit: Silmara Emde of the Orange Lamphouse Studio).

Photographer and friend Silmara Emde and I had a wonderful afternoon strolling Stanley Park in late October.

This next picture is of me with the first tree that led me to research the history of the trees of Stanley Park. It’s the Queen Elizabeth Oak in the Putting Green.

The plaque for this tree intrigued me and my research began.
Park goers are enjoying Lost Lagoon in late March 2019. The weeping willows are greening up.

I have written a book on the trees of Stanley Park, Legacy of Trees: Purposeful Wandering in Vancouver’s Stanley Park. Heritage House Publishing of Victoria will be publishing it in Spring 2020 as an 8″ x 10″ glossy paperback with around 250 photos in under 300 pages.

Stay tuned. I’ll soon be adding more photos to this page, some of the ones that didn’t make the cut for the book and more that Silmara Emde took.
