Community Council Recommendations

North York Community Council recommends that:

 

1. City Council deny the request for a permit to remove one (1) privately owned tree located at 168 Grandravine Drive.

Origin

(December 8, 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 168 Grandravine Drive. The application indicates the reasons for removal are to address concerns the tree is too big for its location and that sap is accumulating on the front walkway and damaging the property owner's car.

 

The subject tree is a Colorado spruce (Picea pungens), measuring 46 cm in diameter. The Private Tree By-law does not support the removal of this tree as it is healthy and maintainable.
