In order to help private property owners with the mitigation of wildfire threatened areas caused by pine beetle, the District of Lake Country will be subsidizing the costs of tree removal and disposal.

The multi-year pine beetle mitigation project will begin in Carr’s Landing with interested property owners completing an application form and undergoing a site inspection of their property to determine the amount of work required.

Once site inspections are complete owners will receive a cost estimate and can then decide if they wish to continue with the mitigation work.

Application forms are available on the district’s website ( and at the Lake Country municipal office.
