TREES FOR THE FU­TURE:

The Glengarry News - - News -

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.
