As the province plans for recovery, the town is beginning to carefully and responsibly bring back services and reopen some public spaces, programs and services. Provincial emergency orders and the town’s physical distancing by-law remain in effect. We must all continue to follow guidelines from Public Health officials.

If you are an arborist or own a tree or arboricultural company, you will be required to obtain a licence starting in 2018.
The annual licensing of certified arborists, arboriculture companies or tree companies will increase accountability of tree removals and maintenance in the Town of Oakville. Landscaping and property maintenance company licences are included in the review to streamline the process between the two business classes.
Licensing of arborists will be similar to the licensing of existing private industries such as landscapers, pool contractors, HVAC installers, and fence installers. Annual licensing helps consumers identify qualified, knowledgeable tree care professionals and help protect and enhance the town’s urban forest.
