City of Toronto tree protection policy & specifications for construction near trees

Mimico Residents, For your information:

Below (linked PDF) are the current City guidelines and regulations should one undertake construction around or near City-owned trees. As well, there are restrictions on backyard trees if they are over 30 cms in diameter at 1.4 metres above the ground. To protect our tree canopy, backyard trees are essential. City street trees just don’t get the canopy cover we need for a host of reasons.

If you or one of your local neighbours have a query or request advice about a tree, MRA can connect you with a practicing Registered Professional Forester for advice.
