NANAIMO – Military to burn invasive plant cuttings on DND property in Nanoose.

  • Mar. 25, 2013 5:40 p.m.

The Department of National Defense will burn invasive plant materials cut from DND property at the Nanoose Transmission Site.

The cuttings were taken from 1.5 hectares of land cleared to improve and restore military training areas between the Nanoose and Parksville exits on Highway 19.

Controlled burning of large piles of plant material is scheduled for Monday to Friday (March 25-29).

Controlled burning operations will depend on weather and wind conditions favourable to dispersing the anticipated large volumes of smoke.
