Current projects on campus: 

Committment 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 timbre in university projects or gift it to Indigenous communities.

Where tree removal is required, UVic plans for the replacement of Bylaw protected trees at 3 to 1, and generally aims to exceed the Tree replacement Bylaw requirements of Oak Bay and Saanich. 1 to 1 tree replacement is planned in some instances including in the case of dead or dying bylaw protected trees as per the Oak Bay and Saanich Tree Protection Bylaws. In instances of tree removal, landscaping is restored with Indigenous plantings.
