Trees have provided work, warmth, shelter and recreation.
Trees do some extremely healthy things for us.
Springwater people, many of them off-season farmers, worked to ship up to 11 million seedlings per year around this province for 70 years last century.
The Midhurst Tree Nursery (1920-1993) was a keystone institution in the development of Vespra township and a provincially-significant contributor in environmental remediation of predatory forestry practices.
That’s something to be proud of.
Something to remember because in 1905 the Nursery Lands used to be called the “Midhurst Wastelands”: a barren, blow sand moonscape of worthless land.
