THE WONDERFUL LIFE OF A DYING TREE
A dead tree needlessly cut down and hauled away is a tree deprived of half its life value and commendable destiny. Gillian Martin’s presentation unveils the habitat value of dead trees. She persuasively illustrates their contribution to the health and sustainability of forests, yes, even the urban forest. Attendees will learn what to consider when selecting and converting a hazardous tree as a habitat tree. They will forever view a dead tree with greater interest and appreciation.
As a passionate bird advocate, naturalist, public speaker and writer, Gillian Martin has invested the last 20 years advocating for birds. One of her earliest missions was to establish the Cavity Conservation Initiative to encourage the safe retention of dead trees as habitat. She is also the cofounder of Tree Care for Birds and other Wildlife Program of the Western Chapter International Society of Arboriculture. Her articles have been published in numerous professional journals and newsletters.
