In 1990, the St Thomas Field Naturalist Club formed the Heritage Tree Committee. They initiated a project to promote an appreciation and awareness of the great range of interesting trees in Elgin County, Ontario. 400 Heritage Trees were labeled with plaques and their locations were detailed on three beautiful pamphlets with colourful maps. To date 30,000 copies of these maps have been published. Lorne Spicer continues to be the driving force behind this project as the committee maintains the plaques and discovers new trees to represent their natural heritage.
