Douglas Justice is responsible for horticulture and the collections at UBC Botanical Garden. He also teaches and writes on a variety of plant-related topics. An advocate for trees and the conservation of natural ecosystems, Douglas Justice believes that landscapes are best created, sustained and repaired by increasing complexity and fostering biodiversity. He is also convinced that beauty, whether ephemeral, ancient, biological, or created, is essential for people’s happiness.
The more we have ecosystems that are vibrant and functioning, the more likely we are to be able to survive droughts or plagues or those kinds of things. As soon as we start to take that apart, then all of a sudden it becomes more difficult. People have to intervene to try and fix things.
