Children from the YMCA Day Camp play “chicken” with the sprinkler system at UNBC’s Enhanced Forestry Lab while learning about growing trees in nurseries. ALRF seedlings provide a great learning opportunity indoors and out!
Black spruce seedlings in UNBC’s Enhanced Forestry Lab grow vigourously in the greenhouse. After two weeks they are about 2 cm high and changing daily. Each plug was planted with two seeds and shortly after this picture was taken, the greenhouse curators dilgently thinned thousands of trees, leaving the healthiest and strongest to keep growing.
Beetle-kill and hazard tree removal began this week in priority areas at UNBC’s Prince George Campus. The work will continue for the next few weeks (February 14th to March 4th). If you are on campus please expect periodic traffic delays of up to 10 minutes, while the contractor ensures a safe environment for both the public and the workers. For more information on this project, read the advisory notice and review the campus treatment map.
