Edson Forest Area Mountain Pine Beetle Control - December 13, 2017

Posted on Wed, Dec 13, 2017

MOUNTAIN PINE BEETLE CONTROL PROGRAM

One of the methods we use to control Mountain Pine Beetle (MPB) from spreading is to cut and burn infested trees. Over the next few months you may see more burn piles and smoke than you're used to seeing during the winter. Use caution if you are travelling in these areas as visibility may be reduced. 

Safety first. Burning will only commence when the forecasted weather and on-the-ground conditions allow for a safe, controlled burn.
