Pine Beetle Surveys in Park (Oct. 2004)
On Oct. 21, 2004 Tembec began a pine beetle survey in the Nature Park. Technicians visited areas of the Park that have shown red patches of trees on aerial photographs. The map below has red dots indicating such patches. In addition, the areas outlined in blue are believed, to have enough pine beetle infested trees to justify logging. In other areas, falling and burning trees may be prescribed. The survey must be completed by mid-January then and we will then sit down with Tembec and the City to discuss the next steps. Stay tuned.
