Origin

(May 5, 2017) Report from the Director, Urban Forestry, Parks, Forestry and Recreation

Summary

This report requests that City Council deny the application for a permit to remove one (1) privately-owned tree located at 8 Hillingdon Avenue. The application indicates the reason for removal is to address concerns of falling fruit that is causing property damage, vehicle damage and tension between neighbours. 

 

The subject tree is a black walnut tree (Juglans nigra), measuring 60 cm in diameter.  The Private Tree By-law does not support the removal of this tree as it is healthy and maintainable.
