The Jody Taylor Memorial Tree in Stanley Park commemorates the life of Jody Taylor, a city arborist, who tragically lost his life on March 31, 2016 while trimming a tree in Connaught Park. Jody was a long-time employee of the city. This tree was planted in his memory on April 28, 2016. Top officials of the City and the Vancouver Parks Board including the mayor of Vancouver and Jody's brother spoke about him. In addition to the big leaf maple tree a memorial bench was also dedicated.
There is also a memorial bench for Jody Taylor in front of the Fish House restaurant.
The plaque says:
He loved life and lived it his way. In loving memory of Jody Taylor.
The Jody Taylor Memorial tree is located on the west side of the Stanley Park Lawn Bowling Club near the Fish House Restaurant in Stanley Park. The Jody Taylor memorial bench is located on the south side of the Fish House restaurant in site of the tree.
