March 31, 2020 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Due to the province’s direction on containment of the coronavirus, unfortunately the Spring Tree Talk has been cancelled. We hope to reschedule this event to a later date. Please watch the website and the Neighbourwoods newsletter for updates.
Speaker: WARREN HOSELTON, presented by Neighbourwoods
Where: Elora Centre for the Arts, 75 Melville St, Elora
Cost: Free for members, $5 non-members
The presentation will examine the effects of High Lakes levels around the Lake Ontario basin from the eyes of a certified arborist stationed on Toronto Island. The presentation looks at the slow and deadly causes and effects on trees resulting from too much water lingering far too long. The Lake levels on Lake Ontario are complicated on many levels but the canary in the coal mine happens to be thousands of trees.
About the speaker: Warren Hoselton (Humber College Landscape Technology / Arboriculture Grad and ISA Certified Arborist) is the Park Supervisor on Toronto Island, overseeing a unique park setting of 230 hectares. He has served on the Board of Directors of the Canadian Tree Fund since 2007. He is the educational outreach lead (and 18-year rider) on the annual Tour des Trees fund-raising tour that features his highly animated “Professor Pricklethorn” tree presentations across North America. He has won several awards and has authored 3 workbooks for children to learn more about the benefits of urban trees. Hoselton misses no opportunity to celebrate the urban tree and its critical role aligned with our well being.
