Tree Notice By-law

Anyone who wants to remove a tree on private property, if the tree has a diameter of at least 7.5 centimetres at breast height, must give the City at least 72-hours written notice before removing the tree.

The 72-hours will start once this notification form has been submitted. You will receive a confirmation email that your notice has been received.

Residents can request that one of the City’s forestry staff visit their property to help identify species of trees that they are considering removing, to discuss the reasons for removal, and to provide recommendations on opportunities to plant certain types of trees that complement our climate and the biodiversity – or mix of trees – in our urban forest.
