Tree in Chemainus to become Wildlife Tree

To the residents of Chemainus,

Following a risk assessment evaluation by an arborist, a Western Red Cedar tree located adjacent to the boat ramp in Chemainus has extensive lower trunk decay and has been compromised.  This tree is a candidate for a wildlife tree and within the next few weeks will be cut to a height of five meters.  

A wildlife tree is a tree (usually damaged, deformed, diseased, decaying, or dead) with special characteristics that provide valuable habitat for the conservation or enhancement of wildlife.

Thank you for your understanding in this matter.
