Community Council Recommendations

North York Community Council recommends that:

 

1. City Council deny the request for a permit to remove two (2) privately-owned trees located at 40 Wilkinson Drive.

Origin

(May 22, 2018) 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 two (2) privately-owned trees located at 40 Wilkinson Drive. The application indicates the reason for removal is to address concerns that tree roots are causing or are likely to cause damage to the existing concrete pool basin and surrounding interlocking brick and that one of the trees has caused roof damage to the home and is growing in an inappropriate location.

 

The subject trees are one (1) honey locust tree (Gleditsia triacanthos), measuring 68 cm in diameter and one (1) little-leaved linden tree (Tilia cordata), measuring 66 cm in diameter. The Private Tree By-law does not support the removal of these trees as they are healthy and maintainable.
