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.
