Milton C. Bradley's memorial grove

A grove of trees in the Scottish Highlands

Milton was a Canadian - born Arnprior, Ontario; died Almonte, Ontario. His deep affinity for the forest was expressed in his memorial card, in the poem,

Trees, written by Joyce Kilmer


I think that I shall never see

A poem lovely as a tree.

A tree whose hungry mouth is prest

Against the earth's sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks at God all day,

And lifts her leafy arms to pray;

A tree that may in Summer wear

A nest of robins in her hair;

Upon whose bosom snow has lain;

Who intimately lives with rain.

Poems are made by fools like me,

But only God can make a tree.

Your grove of trees

The trees in this grove will be carefully planted in protected sites in the Scottish Highlands where they will create homes for wildlife and forests for the future.
