Tree Preservation By-laws are intended to encourage good forestry practices to protect and promote the value of trees in our community. The by-law provides clear guidelines on the circumstances under which trees on private property may or may not be removed, and when permits are required. The Tree Preservation By-law’s focus is on individual trees. If you need information on construction related permits/protection CONTACT US directly.
