Tree Preservation

The Residential Tree Preservation Policy provides direction for the management and retention of residential trees. The goals of the Policy are: to preserve existing trees, woodlots and natural features wherever possible, in accordance with the tree inventory and preservation plan; to provide landscaping at the street line which contributes to the continuity of landscaping between adjacent properties; to stabilize steep embankments with ground cover and trees; to select plant materials that are ecologically sound, appropriate for the existing and future site conditions, and suitable for all seasons.
