As you walk through the arboretum at the Ferguson Forest Centre, you will notice a number of recently installed tree identification plaques. The arboretum, among other roles, is intended to serve as a place where trees, shrubs and herb like plants are cultivated and kept for the enjoyment of the general population as well as for educational and scientific study. The tree identification program was designed to enhance the Ferguson Forest Centre Corporation’s (FFCC’s) forest related educational role. The program provides an opportunity for public donations to purchase approximately thirty (30) ground mounted plaques with the print reflecting the strategically located trees and shrubs name in Latin (genus and species), English, French and Algonquin as available, a few lines of relevant plant information and the donors name. The FFCC is very happy to announce that this first phase of our tree plaque program has sold out, and we would like to thank all of our donors for their generosity! We are in the midst of placing remaining plaques and expect to be completed very soon.
