As the campaign continues to grow, the Highway of Heroes Living Tribute (HOHLT) campaign is proud to announce the addition of two new team members: David Turnbull, Operations Manager, and Rebecca Harrison, Campaign Coordinator.

David Turnbull is a management professional with 30 years of experience in the horticultural industry in management, sales, purchasing and production. Throughout that time, David has been an engaged volunteer in many industry activities, associations and community and church groups.

David is a past-president of Landscape Ontario, and current president of the Ontario Horticultural Trades Foundation, a charitable entity that awards over $30,000 in scholarships each year to qualifying full time students in pursuit of a career in the green profession. The Foundation also provides funding to industry research projects and environmental initiatives.

“I consider it my privilege to be a part of the team working with many people committed to honoring our fallen heroes and greening our major highway in Canada,” David says.

David is also chair and member of the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association (CNLA) health and benefits program across Canada and an Ontario Horticultural Technician Apprenticeship committee member.

Rebecca Harrison joins HOHLT with over 10 years of experience managing campaigns and programs within the non-profit sector. Rebecca is passionate about community building and has a successful track record in fundraising and event management.

Rebecca credits her rural southwestern Ontario upbringing for fostering her dedication to conservation and environmental preservation.

“I am excited to join this respected team and look forward to working together to make the Highway of Heroes Tree Campaign a success,” she says.

Landscape Ontario and many of its professional members are strong supporters and contributors to the HOHLT campaign. For more information, or to get involved, visit
