1.  City Council deny the request for a permit to remove one (1) privately owned tree located at 17 Thirty Eighth Street.

Origin

(October 26, 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 17 Thirty Eighth Street. The application indicates that the reasons for removal are the tree's poor health, close proximity to the dwelling and deck, and concerns that the tree's roots are growing underneath paved surfaces.

 

The tree in question is a white pine (Pinus strobus) measuring 68 cm in diameter. The Private Tree By-law does not support the removal of this tree as it is healthy and maintainable.
