The Forestry Bylaw was established to regulate, protect, plant and maintain trees within the city.
- The City may order the removal of any hazardous or infected tree situated on private property.
- No person shall plant, damage, disturb, prune or remove any public tree.
- No person shall attach any notice, bill, poster, sign, wire, rope, cord, nail or other object to or around any public tree.
- Trees on privately owned property cannot be planted within five metres of any intersection street, or within three metres of a property line that is adjacent to a street.
- Property owners shall ensure that every tree on their property that overhangs a street shall be pruned so that the branches are at least six metres above the ground.
There are fines in place for individuals and/or corporations who do not comply to the regulations within the bylaw. Fines can reach up to $5,000.
