TREES FOR THE FUTURE:
St. Lawrence College Environmental Technician student Chris Terry tamps down the soil to make sure there are no air pockets around the roots of a White Pine seedling he planted at the Trees For Tomorrow Reforestation Program session Saturday at Loch Garry. The planters included Katherine MacDonald from Munro & Morris Funeral Homes and forestry specialist Norm Génier from the Raisin Region Conservation Authority. This was the second annual Trees For Tomorrow since February, 2017 when the RRCA announced it had agreed to set up a Memory Woods in its district where trees are planted in memory of loved ones. For over 30 years, the RRCA has managed a forest at Loch Garry, planting over 130,000 trees. Saturday, 200 more trees were planted by the Memory Woods group that included Mrs. MacDonald’s parents, Jacques and Deborah Tessier, and her sons, Austin and Liam. The youngest planter was Lukas Génier, Mr. Génier’s four-year-old son.
