An insider’s look at the laying of the foundations of modern forestry in Canada.
At the age of seventeen Ken Armson began his career in forestry felling trees in a British conifer plantation.
Thus began the remarkable career of a man who played a seminal role in the development of sustainable forest management in Canada, in particular, Ontario.
He was instrumental in the development of key practices and policies on both public and private forest lands.
Tireless, persuasive, perennially curious, Ken Armson became an energetic advocate for practical mechanisms to improve the transfer of knowledge and innovative practices to forest practioners.
His lifelong fascination with the evolution of forest management practices, their ecological impacts, and the social, economic and political contexts from which they emerged had made for a rich and rewarding life, for Mr. Armson and for all of us.
