Tim Toland
Senior Associate
Tim was born and raised in Caledonia, New York, a small town south of Rochester, where he spent hours wandering the forests, fields and wetlands near his house, fostering an appreciation for nature. With his family always building something, he also grew up with a passion for craft and construction. These interests led him to enter landscape contracting, earning Associates in Landscape Development and Bachelor of Technology degrees from SUNY Cobleskill. While working in Maryland he discovered the broader field of landscape architecture, and went on to earn a Master of Landscape Architecture degree from SUNY College of Environmental Science and Forestry (SUNY-ESF). With this background Tim approaches landscape architecture with a focus on the implementation of projects, merging the technical with the artistic to create enduring places.

Tim joined MVVA in 2018, and has also practiced in New York, Virginia, Ohio, and North Carolina. From 2005 to 2018, he was an associate professor at SUNY-ESF, teaching courses including plant identification, planting design, construction materials, and construction documents. While at SUNY-ESF, he researched the implementation of green infrastructure, particularly the design of soil media for biofiltration facilities. At MVVA he has been actively involved in the Port Lands project in Toronto, working on both the river and parks, and helping to deliver the soils, utilities, and supporting infrastructure scope of the project.

Tim is a registered landscape architect in New York, North Carolina, and Ohio, and a LEED Accredited Professional (AP).
