Current projects on campus: 

Commitment to Ecological Diversity 

UVic is committed to protecting and managing the ecological diversity of the natural areas on campus.

Tree retention is evaluated carefully in each university project, and the university explores opportunities to re-use the harvested timber in university projects or gift it to Indigenous communities.

Where tree removal is required, the university plans for the replacement of Bylaw protected trees to meet the tree replacement requirements of District of Oak Bay and Saanich Tree Protection Bylaws. In instances of tree removal and implementation of new landscaping, new landscape is restored with Indigenous and drought-tolerant plantings.
