John W. Squires Sr. and his son John W. Squires Jr., now deceased, were both foresters. They were very involved in planting trees which has made Trees for Life a wonderful way to remember "Big John", John W. Squires Jr. The Squires family of seven, on many occasions, participated together planting trees on their tree farm in Mississippi, USA. A grove of trees in the Scottish Highlands named for John W. Squires Jr. and his dad, will be a lasting tribute to their families as a true patron of nature and especially the tree. Big John was the tree of his family, strong roots, a solid trunk and all his wonderful branches and leaves. They are both still alive in our hearts. James and Vicki Squires
