P.G. Roots Are In Olympic Podium

When some 2010 Olympians receive their medals, they will be stepping on a podium that has its roots in Prince George.

Prince George, the Prince George Community Forest and Lakeland Mills share in the creation of a beetle enhanced lodge pole pine podium that will be at the Pacific Coliseum.

The wood was harvested from Forests for the World, taken to Lakeland Mills where it was made into 2x4’s, then shipped to Bayview Mills in Vancouver where it was converted to panels.
