Wildfire Protection / Hazard Tree Removal - Whistlers Campground

Landmark responded to Jasper National Park's Request for Proposals to coordinate and facilitate selective thinning treatments in designated areas (~100 hectares) to achieve objectives for wildfire protection and removal of trees that were potentially hazardous to campground users. Landmark's proposal included innovative, yet practical, techniques on how to efficiently operate under the strict environmental standards required by Parks Canada.

Landmark's project highlights include:

  • Processing wood into ~800 cords of firewood that was used at the campground.
  • Processing wood into ~150 tonnes of chips to be used at the local WWTP
  • Designing a stationary burn bin that was utilized throughout the project to minimize smoke disturbance to the community.
  • Coordinating and supervising a team of skilled labourers and equipment operators
  • Completing the project safely on time and on budget and up to JNP environmental standards
