PCL introduces tree legacy program

Rob Smith, left, and Goldy Gill of PCL talk to students about their chance to plant a tree on the site of the new Mills Memorial Hospital.

With the support of Northern Health, PCL is engaging schools and students in Terrace in a Tree Legacy Programinitiative to repopulate trees at the Mills Memorial Replacement Project site, once the build is complete.

Starting in May 2022, participating students will be provided a tree plug with responsibility to nurture the plug in preparation for the 2024 planting season.

PCL has arranged for local business, Uplands Nursery, to provide local tree species to symbolize the history and culture of the region.

In a follow up to Earth Day (April 22), the program kicked off its first presentations to students at Thornhill Elementary School and Centennial Christian School on April 28. PCL will present to Ecole Mountainview on May 3 and Uplands on May 5.
