A Trail Called Home
Trees define so much of Canadian life, but many people, particularly in the Golden Horseshoe area of Ontario, don't know that much about them. Granted, it is harder here: there are more trees native to this area than anywhere else in Canada.
The greatest storytellers of the landscape, trees are looking glasses into the past. They speak of biology, ecology, and geology, as well as natural and human history. Through a greater understanding of trees, we can become more rooted to the land beneath our feet and our place in it.
Paul O'Hara is a writer, field botanist, landscape designer, and native plant gardening expert. He lives in Hamilton, Ontario.
