Canadian Tree Fund's Harold Van Dyke's Memorial Bursary

Canadian Tree Fund's Harold Van Dyke Memorial Bursary Deadline is January 31st, 2016. For more information please visit their website

Harold was the owner of Van Dyke Tree & Landscape Ltd. and a long-standing ISA/ISAO member. He was President in 1969 and received the Supporting Membership Award in 1995. Harold was very active in commercial arborist matters throughout the province. He passed away suddenly in 1997. His son Larry carries on the business today. Among other passions, Harold loved to help young people, especially arboriculture students. Besides vocally pushing for more and better courses, he quietly helped students in need financially. Although never on the board of the Canadian TREE Fund (then called the ISA Canadian Research Trust), the Ontario Commercial Arborists’ Association (OCAA) donated money in his name and asked that a special bursary be established through CTF.

Our mission is to enhance and promote the care and benefit of trees for present and future generations in Ontario through education, research and awareness.
