Edith George has been an Advisor to the non-profit the Ontario Urban Forest Council (est. 1963) for over ten years. She is a former Director of the Board of the Weston Historical Society.
She is quick to admit her passion for heritage trees and travels the province of Ontario answering the questions, "What is a heritage tree?" and "Why should they be protect?". She uses her neighbourhood’s great red oak and tells it’s story.
She is an online columnist for Metroland Media Group. Her column is titled, “Natural Roots” and is about the various significant trees found in the city where she was born and lives - Toronto, Ontario.
As more people learn about the importance of our natural roots, they will understand the need for identifying and preserving this special part of our history that is often overlooked and even taken for granted.
