Giants of Nova Scotia

Giving some relief to the stream of mostly negative news about forests and forestry in Nova Scotia, Tom Rogers has launched Giants of Nova Scotia to “celebrate the beauty of Nova Scotia’s trees and forest through a 2019 Calendar with all proceeds donated to help keep it that way”.

Says Tom:

There’s a photo contest to select outstanding examples of Nova Scotia’s trees and forest with a gentle message about how individuals can help prevent the spread of invasive species.

All money raised goes to the front line of prevention through the Mersey Tobeatic Research Institute.

The photo contest deadline is Friday September 14, 2018.

The calendars will be available October 31, 2018, just in time for Christmas.

Tom manages Acadian forest on a 150 acre family farmstead at Wentzell Lake. He writes about it in his blog Rediscovering My Acadian Forest. I have been a fan and follower of the blog for a while (view post Mar 29, 2017).


Update Apr 17, 2018: View some submissions at, and view a related post: Silver Lining on

Thanks, Tom for sharing some good thoughts and actions.
