Green Timbers Award

The inception of the “GREEN TIMBERS AWARD” developed from two central themes. The first was to provide a means by which the forest nursery community could recognize the history and major contributions of an individual or organization to reforestation in British Columbia, Canada.

The second stems from a desire to keep the Green Timbers name alive. Green Timbers Nursery was closed in January 1999. It was the oldest operational nursery in BC, established in 1930 as a commitment by the government to an operational forest seedling production program.

 

Green Timbers is a heritage site housing some of the original nursery buildings including the original Forest Ranger Training School. In addition it is home to the first plantation in BC, an arboretum and commemorative plantings for the one and two billionth seedlings planted in BC. It seemed appropriate to use the Green Timbers name as a reflection of the intent of this award.
