TLA Christmas Tree at Campbell River's Museum

Once again this year, the TLA sponsored a Christmas tree at the Museum at Campbell River. New this year, the TLA's tree is REAL and standing just outside the Museum's entrance.

Forestry is a big part of Campbell River's history and of the community's economy and culture today. There are over 100 TLA member companies based in Campbell River. This town is the heart and soul of forestry on Vancouver Island!

This year we have hearts on our tree symbolizing that Campbell River is the heart and soul of forestry in BC. Thanks, as always, to Tara and her team at the Museum for their inventive decorating. We couldn't have a tree without them!
