On June 10th, 2019, a Draft Private Tree By-law and report were brought to Committee of the Whole to receive comments and feedback from the community.
The proposed Draft By-law would only apply to healthy trees in the three Village Communities of King City, Nobleton, and Schomberg. Property owners would be able to remove healthy trees under the authorization of a permit. The conditions of this permit would require that three replacement trees are planted in its place, or the equivalent in cash-in-lieu is paid into the Township's fund to plant trees on public property.
If a property owner needs to remove a dead, dying, or diseased tree, they will also require a permit, but they will NOT have to replace the tree or pay a cash-in-lieu fee.
Now we want to hear from you!
King is looking for feedback on the Draft By-law, and have launched a public consultation process through the Township's engagement platform called "Speaking". Visit our page to take our survey, ask questions, and share your thoughts about where trees in King should be protected.
