Spring tree planting begins the first week of May and runs until late June, weather permitting. Forestry Services crews water over 7,500 newly planted trees weekly between May and September.
Spring and summer tree maintenance activities will be ongoing and will include lifecycle and reactive tree pruning and the removal of dead or hazardous trees. Tree stumping operations will begin in early May and continue through the fall. Forestry inspections staff will continue to respond to requests for service to City trees, assess storm damage, monitor tree and forest health, and enforce tree protection and permitting related to the Tree Protection By-law.
