During an inventory evening last week, Jeff one of our regulars directed us to the Monumental Black Maple that commemorates the Grave Site of the empire loyalists, and particularly Richard Beasley, a pioneer settler of the Head of the Lakes!

A beautiful tree native to the Carolinian and in the heart of the Beasley neighbourhood, it is readily seeding, and we hope to propagate some offspring!

If any tree deserves heritage distinction its this guy! Tell us what you think!
