“Invariably fortune shined on St. Barbe Baker.  In 1930 on his first trip to North America, an editor of Dial Press happened to overhear St. Barbe Baker tell a story of his first trip to Africa.  He offered Baker a $500 advance on his first book, the Man of the Trees.  Next Baker ran into the best known broadcaster of the time, Lowell Thomas, who had him on his radio programme, and also agreed to write the introduction to his first book.  It was Thomas who dubbed Baker the Man of the Trees.

So Baker’s magic seemed to bless this project too.  Serendipity led to the Prince of Wales writing the forward to the book, and not one but two Lieutenant Governors holding receptions to help launch this book.  Jane Goodall’s support also came about by chance.”~Paul Hanley

 Life is full of surprises and serendipity. Being open to unexpected turns in the road is an important part of success. If you try to plan every step, you may miss those wonderful twists and turns. Just find your next adventure-do it well, enjoy it-and then, not now, think about what comes next.
Condoleeza Rice

The Province of Saskatchewan Motto:

Multis e gentibus vires (From Many Peoples Strength)

Has any one of us ever really seen a Tree? When we become aware of trees we may each glimpse of them to moments of spiritual vision and, identifying ourselves with the trees, become conscious of the rising of the sap; the upward thrust of life, leaf burgeoning, their consciousness of the changing seasons; we may share their passionately boisterous exuberance of life in the height of the storm, and their tranquility when at rest; with them we will enjoy the glad murmur of the ripening seed clusters when after weeks of drought the steady warm rain brings relief to thirst; and we will know that these creatures, our elder brethern, are intimately related to us in their love and hunger for life. We may even catch their enthusiasm and aspire heavenwards while still rooted in our Mother Earth and in communion with our fellow man and, tree-wise, strive to make the Earth more fruitful again.~Richard St. Barbe Baker

This website is about the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area - an urban regional park of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan, Canada. The hosts are the stewards of the afforestation area. The afforestation area received its name in honour of the great humanitarian, Richard St. Barbe Baker. Richard St. Barbe Baker (9 October 1889 – 9 June 1982) was an English forester, environmental activist and author, who contributed greatly to worldwide reforestation efforts. As a leader, he founded an organization, Men of the Trees, still active today, whose many chapters carry out reforestation internationally. {Wikipedia} Email is StBarbeBaker AT yahoo.com to reach the Stewards of the Richard St. Barbe Baker Afforestation Area

    1. Cool, Richard St. Barbe Baker was amazing when it came to serendipity, and it seems to follow along, now Paul Hanley has been similarly blessed. Something amazing and wonderful happens when it comes to planting trees, and saving the planet. Thanks to your comment, thanks to Paul Hanley for writing this outstanding biography, and thanks to Richard St. Barbe Baker for starting Men of the Trees (now International Tree Foundation ITF), and starting in motion many many international endeavours of planting billions of trees worlwide
