Common Areas Trees
In early 2020, a community-wide inspection of street trees, buffer, greenbelts and NGPA was performed by Arborwell. More than 2,500 trees were mapped and a 3-year tree maintenance schedule was established to maintain the trees.

The Board of Directors has approved phase 1 of the proposed budget. In phase 1, the following will be done:
455 trees will receive general tree care (including pruning, crown thining, structural pruning, weight reduction).
166 trees will receive Plant health care such as treatment and injection in order to protect the trees.
39 trees will be removed or will be snagged.
Frequently asked questions
How is the removal of a tree decided?
A tree will be removed if the tree is determined to be a 'dead or hazardous'. To be classified as hazardous, the health or conditions of the tree need to be a potential threat for a property (like a home) or for the safety of pedestrians or cars if the tree would fall.
Branches are falling in my yard. Will the tree be removed?
Not automatically. To some degree, it can be normal that branches from a tree break and fall during a storm or during the life of a tree, especially during a storm.
The contractor came but did not remove the tree entirely. When will the rest of the trunk will be removed?
Trees located in a Native Growth Protection Area (NGPA), or Critical Area Protection Area (CAPA) are never fully removed.
What are NGPA, CAPA, and wetlands?
Native Growth Protection Area (NGPA), Critical Area Protection Area (CAPA) and wetlands are protected areas. In general, vegetation within the NGPA, CAPA and wetlands cannot be disturbed.
