At the former Shell Peace River Complex, Wild and Pine was tasked with reforesting an abandoned airstrip. Our solution needed to control aggressive vegetation competition, which threatened to overtake any seedlings we planted.
To align with the land and ecosystem, our team planted more than 60,000 tree and shrub seedlings. We identified and created a competition-free zone around desirable species, and then eliminated all noxious weeds. Our work produced insightful data for the NAIT Boreal Research Institute, providing new reforestation knowledge to Alberta’s industries.
