Peterborough Passes Tree Bylaw

GREAT NEWS! The city of Peterborough has passed a new and comprehensive TREE BYLAW to protect the city’s rapidly diminishing urban tree canopy.

The bylaw passed unanimously, and in full, on May 25th, and was the product of a forward thinking city staff, and a great deal of research, emailing, campaigning, and presenting by 4RG’s tree team composed of Kate Grierson, Drew Monkman, and Steve Russell.

The highlights of the bylaw include:

  1. Each tree removed will be replaced by two more.
  2. Spring and fall tree planting events with an educational component.
  3. The city working with local partners for additional education and outreach.
  4. The hiring of a technologist to oversee programs and permits.
