We can answer questions you might have about tree protection zones and whether these regulations apply to your project.
Trees are essential to the overall beauty and health of an area, as they contribute to the oxygen and cleanliness of the air, as well as the visual appeal. All types of trees can help replenish the oxygen in the atmosphere. They’re also important to the animals and wildlife that call a particular area of the country home. Here in Burlington, Ontario and much of the surrounding area, bylaws protect what the government refers to as “tree protection zones”, which are the minimum required distances where tree protection must be put into place.
Construction projects and urban growth can impact the forested areas of any city, and the government in this particular area is working to prevent that from happening on a large scale. Within an established tree protection zone, no construction activity of any kind is allowed to take place. If you want to remove a tree from your property, you may be able to skip the permit process if you plan to submit a full tree protection zone plan. At Hudson Tree Services, we can help with the process of tree removal and adhering to the regulations that apply. We want to ensure that your plans are in accordance with the legal requirements in this particular area.
