Mountain Pine Beetle Program

Mountain Pine Beetle tree removal and burn in progress.

Infested trees on or near private property will be felled and removed to a burn pit. Infested trees on Town Reserves areas may be felled and burned on site, felled and peeled on site or felled and moved to the burn pit. This program is funded by the Province of Alberta Mountain Pine Beetle Municipal Grant Program. For public safety and for the safety of the contractors, we are asking the public to stay well clear of any active tree removal or burn sites. Fires will be monitored.
