Wisconsin Forestry Hall of Fame
M.N. "Mully" Taylor
1903 - 1984
In recognition of his founding TREES FOR TOMORROW - The Nation's first public Conservation Education Center. During his 31 year tenure as Executive Director, Taylor developed the "on site" natural resources workshop system for teaching people wise management and use of our natural resources which is now the model for contemporary environmental education programs.
With the support of the paper and power industries, Taylor distributed 23 million tree seedlings to owners of small private woodlands. This program established that large sale planting of tree seedlings on private land was practical in maintaining the productivity of such lands.
