Toronto Tree Portraits - 2006 calendar

We would like to let you know about the Toronto Tree Portraits -- 2006 Desk Calendar. Photographer Geoffrey James has collaborated with writer Pleasance Crawford to produce Toronto Tree Portraits, a 2006 desk calendar that celebrates the importance and uniqueness of our tree heritage with a selection of photographs of some of the most exquisite and aged trees in Toronto’s parks and public open spaces. The calendar’s foreword is by Margaret Atwood.

Trees are the lifelines of Toronto, and a predominant contributor to its image as a green and livable city. These annotated tree portraits not only provide a unique and innovative perspective on Toronto’s past, they also serve as a key to the future. Proceeds from the sale of the Toronto Tree Portraits calendars will go directly to the Toronto Parks and Trees Foundation, a charitable public foundation that was founded in 2002 in response to a growing concern about the state of parks and trees in Toronto.

The calendar, reasonably priced at $15, is available by calling the Toronto Parks and Trees Foundation at 416-397-5178. You can learn more about the Toronto Parks and Trees Foundation at

It will also be available for sale in the Rotunda of City Hall between 9 AM and 3 PM on Monday, 5 December. This calendar makes a great stocking stuffer for those looking for seasonal gifts!
