Ontario Tree Seed Plant Hosts Forests Ontario’s Annual General Meeting
On September 20th, 2014, Forests Ontario held its first Annual General meeting since it formed following the merger of Trees Ontario and the Ontario Forestry Association. The meeting was held at the Ontario Tree Seed Plant (OTSP) in Angus, Ontario and kicked off with an introduction from Forests Ontario CEO, Rob Keen, who welcomed members and trustees to the day’s event. Rob gave a special thank you to Al Foley, General Manager of OTSP, for hosting the event and introduced Foley to the assembled members.
Foley gave a brief history of the facility and discussed two particular areas in which the OTSP is supported by the work of Forests Ontario. “Forest Ontario works closely and collaboratively with us to plan ahead by providing seed collection targets up to five years in advance of tree planting efforts,” shared Foley. “Beyond that, Forests Ontario is ensuring the future of seed collecting competencies through the ongoing training of seed collectors. We are very thankful to Forests Ontario for their contributions and support.”
