The number of trees killed by the mountain pine beetle is expected to grow exponentially over the next few years increasing the wildfire risk posed to the community. Mark Fercho photo.

FireSmart work to improve community wildfire protection around the Municipality of Jasper continues.

In addition to the work completed by the Municipality of Jasper, Parks Canada crews are now manually removing forest regrowth and mountain pine beetle affected trees in previously treated FireSmart areas along the community fireguard.

Please keep an eye out for crews and follow all posted warnings and closures along trails and on the Parks Canada trail condition report.
