Guess what, we’re taking Christmas holidays! That means our office will be closed from December 21st, 2010  to January 3rd, 2011.

Season’s Greetings from all of us at the Aleza Lake Research Forest Society, and all the best for the New Year!

A Swedish Invasion!

Students consider the implications of managing for old growth forests on carbon sequestration.
Mike Jull describes managing for landscape level old growth, as the SLU students consider the implications for carbon sequestration.

Twenty-two graduate students and instructors from the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) visited ALRF on October 9th as part of a two-week intensive field course. Coordinated in partnership between SLU and the UBC Alex Fraser Research Forest, the group traveled through BC’s lower mainland and the Interior to speak with various forest practitioners and learn about our diverse management issues. In addition to touring the ALRF, the students’ two-day stay in Prince George included pine forests and caribou habitat near Bear Lake, as well as a visit to the Ancient Forest before continuing on to the McBride Community Forest.
