Trees coming down

Booms from falling trees could be heard this week at the new Comox Valley hospital site as the land was cleared. The Vancouver Island Health Authority expected to retain some trees on 11-acre wooded portion of the site at Lerwick and Ryan roads, but most of them were expected to come down. Over 1,000 new trees will be planted after construction. - Renee Andor
