Remembering Alice Tonry

SELT was saddened to learn of the peaceful passing of Alice Tonry of Hampton Falls on July 5th. We knew Alice as a conservationist and Tree Farmer who with her late husband Herbert and children started the Christmas tree farm back in the 1960’s as a 4H project. Now, more than 50 years later, the farm continues to connect hundreds of families to the land through its pick your own tree operation. With her family, Alice permanently conserved the 215-acre Tonry Tree Farm with SELT back in 2007. Because of her love of the land and commitment to conserve it, the Tonry Tree Farm remains for the joy and benefit of future generations.

We are grateful that the land trust has been named as the beneficiary of gifts in her honor and memory. A full obituary can be read here: Alice Tonry Obituary
