UBC Forestry Co-op Student Rachel Shanner is standing in front of an large hill of snow, with her thumbs up.

This is my second work term with BC Hydro with the Vegetation Management Team in Integrated Planning. I have been working on revising the Hazard Tree Program Standard which includes combining existing documents, adding wildfire risk consideration to work practices, and updating terminology. I was also responsible for inputting all the Daily Operations Records for herbicide applications that took place in 2020, and have been assisting with some internal auditing. Through Co-op, I have had a chance to see the huge variety of careers that are available even within a single company.
