Thunder Bay Trees is a videoblog by me, Jay Dampier. The content is about trees in and around Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada.
I am an environmental educator with an interest in trees, arboriculture and forest ecology. I have experience in forestry, arboriculture, adult education, and volunteer management. For a season in my life, I studied theology.
As a self-proclaimed tree-nerd, I hold a Masters in Environmental Education and a Masters in Forestry, an undergrad degree in Natural Science and a Diploma in Forest Resources Management. I am also an ISA Certified Arborist and hold an Ontario Pesticide Applicator License in the Forestry, Landscape and Industrial categories.
My wife, two daughters and I call Thunder Bay home since 2003. Before that I lived in the Northeast United States for about five years. I grew up in Nipigon and love Northwestern Ontario.
