Quote:A plaque in front of the house says the tree’s falling leaves inspired Alexander Muir, the one-time principal of nearby Leslieville public school, to write The Maple Leaf Forever.

-----------------------------------------------

Quote:More than one year after Toronto’s “The Maple Leaf Forever” tree crashed to the ground in a storm, thousands of pieces of the legendary tree are being carved up and spread across Canada.

Quote:After it toppled in a July 2013 storm, the city intervened — gaining stewardship of the tree, preventing it from being turned into mulch and offering up chunks of wood to groups across Canada for public projects (or personal projects, provided they donated money to urban forestry projects).

Quote:Colin Cripps of Blue Rodeo is also involved in a project crafting guitars — one electric and one acoustic — to be loaned out to aspiring Toronto artists.

I heard Colin Cripps play the acoustic guitar fashioned out of the Maple Leaf Forever Tree and added all the Canadiana extras on the fret - and it sounded lovely, but I am having a difficult time finding the radio segment where he was playing it. Maybe they just haven't posted it yet. I believe he also said that he has enough wood left to fashion an electric guitar too.
