Community Council Recommendations

The Toronto and East York Community Council recommends that:

 

1. City Council deny the request for a permit to remove one (1) privately owned tree located at 16 Cornish Road.

Origin

(December 12, 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 16 Cornish Road. The application indicates the reasons for removal are that the property owner wishes to re-landscape the yard, and that the tree is in an undesirable location. They are also concerned about the potential hazard of falling walnuts and the secretion of juglone into the soil preventing other plants from growing.

 

The subject tree is a black walnut (Juglans nigra), measuring 51 cm in diameter. The Private Tree By-law does not support the removal of this tree as it is healthy and maintainable.
