Harold Macy has lived in Merville, halfway up the east side of Vancouver Island B.C., for more than thirty years. During that time he has worked for the BC Forest Service Research Branch, been a silviculture contractor for a local forestry company, fought wildfi res, had rain in his lunch pail heli-logging up in the mid-coast inlets, and for many years was the forester at the UBC Oyster River Research Farm, where he wrote and delivered on-line and weekend courses in small scale forestry and agroforestry.

According to Merville-raised novelist Jack Hodgins, Harold Macy's The Four Storey Forest: As Grow the Trees, So Too The Heart (Poplar 2011) is part autobiography, part spiritual journey, part historical fiction, and part arboreal adventure... a four-pillared exploration of life as it is lived by the people and the forests of north-central Vancouver Island.
