Canfor Nursery Celebrates 35 Years

JDLittle_Sign

This year marks the 35th anniversary of our JD Little Forest Centre. The nursery plays an integral role in our reforestation efforts by growing roughly 9.5 million hybrid white spruce trees every year. To grow this impressive volume of seedlings, we have a committed team of full-time and seasonal employees who work at this highly productive nursery.

As mentioned in an earlier blog, the original celebration plan for July 15 was put on hold as a result of Canfor management’s decision to redirect the catering to feed wildfire evacuees who were living at the College of New Caledonia.

The event was rescheduled for August 3 and was attended by approximately 125 people, including current and past JDL employees as well as employees from our Canfor Administration Centre. We also had the pleasure of having Karen Myatovic and Keith Little attend; their late father, Doug Little, founded the nursery in 1982.

The event was a great success thanks to the support and team effort by all those who helped prepare the nursey and grounds for the event, assisted with arrangements leading up to the event and took on the cooking and cleaning the day of the event. Everyone’s involvement was greatly appreciated.

Happy Anniversary to everyone who has contributed to the success of JD Little Forest Centre over the past 35 years. We look forward to many more great years.
