Parks Canada felled 88 trees of different species to clear the way for restoration work on the West Ravelin of the Quebec Citadel’s fortifications. In the centre-background is the spire of Chalmers-Wesley United Church and the Price Building.

Eighty-eight trees have been felled on the slope between the fortifications of the Quebec Citadel and Avenue Saint-Denis to make way for a major restoration project on the walls of the national historic site.
