Trees On Private Property

There is no by-law to govern trees on private property. However, trees that encroach on road allowances may need pruning to ensure traffic and pedestrian safety.

Trees Along Municipal Roadways

Public Works maintains the trees along roadways. The first priority for tree work is to ensure safety along the right-of-way. Trees that are dangerous, damaged, or diseased are trimmed or removed.

If you discover a municipal tree that is damaged or diseased and requires attention please call 519.360.1998 or email

Trees Along Hydro Lines

Public Works does not prune trees along hydro wires. Contact your hydro provider with concerns about these trees.
