We have been very busy scoping out the Lake Erie shoreline looking for southern seed sources. With the launching of our assisted tree migration program we needed southern seed sources to bring northward so that we might be able to offer mixed provenances.
We have been blessed this year to see many new places in Ontario as we go exploring. What a great job. I really can’t consider this work when we get to travel to so many beautiful and fascinating places and meet great people.
I think the only red oaks that produced any meaningful amounts of acorns was at Crystal beach. Wow – these oaks were already present when the lake shore cabins were built around 1904. What an incredible view as these red oaks arch over the roadway and extend to Lake Erie. So glad work took us there!
