Forestry Services will have a contractor completing tending and tree planting within several parks or forested areas in Bay Ward, including:
- Andrew Haydon Park
- Frank Ryan Park
The works and specific locations are detailed below. Notification signs will be posted at each location prior to the commencement of work.
These operations will include the removal and treatment of invasive plants and other competing
species to allow for existing and planted native trees to succeed. Please note, where trails run
through the treatment areas, it may be necessary to close the public access for a short period of
time while the treatment takes place. Signs will be posted on site to identify these areas that will
be temporarily closed to park users. Signs will include provincially regulated information about
pesticide use, treatment timing and contact. For your safety, please do not enter the parks or
pathways where signs are posted. Brush piles created through mechanical removal of
vegetation will be removed following the completion of operations.
