A new Tree Protection By-law with permit fees, fines and processes will come into effect on Friday, January 1. Council approved a motion to accelerate work on this by-law, which had been delayed due to the City’s response to COVID-19. The new by-law reduces the size of distinctive trees in the inner urban area, which will help protect more trees. The City will hire up to four temporary staff – using vacant positions – to enforce the new provisions.
