The tree removal process in Downtown, Midland, and Newcastle is now complete.
The health of the trees were assessed, and any trees in good or fair health will be replaced at a ratio of 5:1 – 5 replacements for every 1 removal. The replacements may be trees or shrubs or a combination of trees and shrubs.
Some of the trees removed will be repurposed through a project initiated by a group of residents and Mayor Colberg. Artists will be sought for creating carvings, benches, handrails, and natural playgrounds for the Town to honour and appreciate the life and legacy of the trees. To learn more about this project, watch this video.
If you'd like to submit feedback regarding how you would like to see our trees repurposed, or if you or someone you know would like to volunteer, please fill out this survey.
