The District uses windfall trees in a meaningful way

Did you know that windfall trees in the District are used whenever possible for the benefit of the community? The wood is used to make bridges, benches, stairs, and trail paths in our woodworking shop. Some of the wood used is even recovered from the foreshore.

The District has its own mill, which is unique to West Vancouver, and enables us to be both environmentally and fiscally responsible, as it means that this wood can be processed by the District’s own carpentry staff.

This practice saves taxpayer money, and is also a wonderful way to beautify the community and to create things from our trees that would otherwise go unused.
