1. City Council deny the request for a permit to remove one (1) privately owned tree located at 56 Cassandra Boulevard.

Origin

(October 23, 2017) Report from the Director, Urban Forestry, Parks, Forestry and Recreation

Summary

This report recommends that City Council deny the request for a permit to remove one (1) privately-owned tree located at 56 Cassandra Boulevard. The application indicates the reason for removal is that the tree is too large and that a resident at 56 Cassandra Boulevard has an allergy to pollen from pine trees (Pinus spp.).

 

The subject tree is a white spruce (Picea glauca), measuring 41.5 cm in diameter. The Private Tree By-law does not support the removal of this tree as it is healthy and maintainable.
