Trees and Woodlands

Need to remove a tree? You might need a permit

In response to the need for the town to take action to slow the spread of COVID-19, all non-essential services have been reduced so that the town can focus on the delivery of essential and critical services to support our community. Currently the town will only be accepting removal permit requests for dead, ash and hazardous trees as well as trees to be protected or removed as a part of demolition permit or Development Engineering application.

Fill out our simple online Private Tree Removal Permit Application and receive an on-site consultation from one of our tree inspectors.
