Maybe leaving some trees at time of clearing land would work better
There should be no cost for this. No deposit. Nothing. There does not appear to be a shortage of trees in our area. Trees that won't interfere with underground pipes should be applied for and provided free of charge by the town. If you want civic enhancement and beautification you can start with the town depot on McCurdy. Businesses with a mess around should be fenced. Homes that are untidy should have to be kept up to a minimum standard. Forcing new home buyers to incur a "tree tax" is unfair. We have planted two trees at our new home. One tree was destroyed when a speeding car left the road and never even had the decency to come knock on our door and offer to replace it. Perhaps the town can concentrate its efforts on beautifying what's already here and getting the RCMP to actually patrol our streets and get control of the speeding.
If The Town of Gander likes trees so much maybe they shouldn’t have made my mother cut down a beautiful birch tree on her front lawn just for the contractor they hired to look at my mother and say right to her face there was no need for us to cut down that tree down.
The city of Barrie just plants new trees in all new developments....we don’t have to pay for them?
What is driving this new regulation? Just curious.
How,quick before roots of trees are in the water and sewer lines. May we be inviting trouble with this new regulation? As much as I like the trees most on my street were cut down on the front for this very reason.
Demand that developers leave two mature trees with mature roots on each parcel of land they sell.
