Tree Removal Starts on PG Campus

A small loader pulls trees from a stand on the south side of the Northern Sports Centre. Handfalling (chainsaws) and customized machinery are used to ensure a light touch within the natural forests around campus.

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.

Season’s Greetings!

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