Construction activities often impact trees and hedges.
The Protection of Trees bylaw spells out the steps that must be taken to reduce that impact, such as putting up tree barriers around trees that will remain or replacing trees that will be taken down.
A tree-related inspection will check that the tree barriers are the right size, or that the tree removal / replacement was done properly.
Note: Tree barriers must be in place before demolition or deconstruction of a building.
- If an inspection request is received before 2:00pm on a business day, the inspection will be booked for the following business day.
- If an inspection request is received any time during the weekend or on a holiday, the inspection will be booked for two business days later.
- If you want to receive a confirmation call from the building inspector before the inspection, leave your name and phone number when booking your inspection.
