Vandalism reports lead to tree removal

The District of Vanderhoof council has passed a resolution to remove a diseased tree and to prune other trees in front of the cadet building on Burrard Avenue to improve the buildings security.

The District of Vanderhoof council has passed a resolution to remove a diseased tree and to prune other trees in front of the cadet building on Burrard Avenue to improve the buildings security.

During the last regular council meeting on July 20, a request was made by Superintendent of Public Works, Paul Carver, to remove all of the trees from the front of the property.

The request came about after several reports of vandalism to the municipal building in recent weeks including broken windows.

 

Council amended the resolution from removing all trees to just removing one, which has been badly damaged by the mountain pine beetle. The other three trees will be pruned in an attempt to decrease the visual shelter in front of the building which may be aiding acts of vandalism.
