UNBC’s Forestry Club is branching out into a unique business venture – a Christmas Tree Farm.
It’s a project that when the trees are sold, will produce income for the Forestry Club to sponsor scholarships, charities, and donations of Christmas trees by 2026.
A mix of spruce and Douglas-Fir seedlings will be planted on a 3.4-hectare parcel of land located on the UNBC campus, north of the Teaching and Learning Centre along an access road/walking trail.
Healthy Forests, Healthy Lives:
Exploring the Link between our Environment and Health
UNBC Forest Ecology and Management students Anna Tobiasz and Hadyn Yeomans are working with botanist Curtis Bjork in the biodiversity assessment.
UNBC researchers have discovered a rare orchid in the new Ancient Forest/Chun T’oh Whudujut Provincial Park, one that hasn’t been seen in B.C.’s Interior since 1932.
Prince George, BC – A unique log and timber building and classroom on a hilltop overlooking the Upper Fraser area and the McGregor Mountains opened its doors on Wednesday.
Mr. Toby Turner will be defending his thesis entitled: “Soil and Topographic Features Affect Plant Growth on a Natural Gas Pipeline Right-of-Way in Northeastern British Columbia”
Mr. Turner is a candidate for the degree: Master of Science in Natural Resources and Environmental Studies (Forestry)
Chair: Dr. Alex Aravind
University of Northern British Columbia

My research program integrates plant and fungal functional ecology in order to better understand plant species coexistence and ecosystem functioning.
First, I give some background on ectomycorrhizal fungi (EMF), EMF networks, and root-derived carbon (C) sequestration in soils. Ectomycorrhizal fungi in many temperate and boreal forests drive belowground C and nutrient cycling, and influence plant interactions.
My general interests broadly lie in applied ecology and conservation. However, I am particularly interested in the environmental and biological mechanisms driving patterns of regeneration, mortality and growth of forests at multiple spatial and temporal scales.
Students taking Animal Physiology (BIOL321) this term worked feverishly on their ‘Physi-O-lympics’ projects over the past weeks.
The inaugural ‘Physi-O-lympics’ are a newly established Biol321 course component, inspired by the recent Olympic Games in Sochi, Russia.
