I am happy to advise that Forestry Services’ fall planting program is scheduled to begin the week of October 3rd and will run, weather permitting, until the third week of November. This includes tree planting in parks, at City facilities, and along streets.
Please click here for a detailed list of locations where trees will be planted in ward 6. Note that this information is what is planned as of today and cancellations/changes typically occur.
Residents should receive notification where a tree planting is scheduled on City property adjacent to a residence in advance of planting. Residents should also expect to see utility locate flags and paint on the ground prior to planting. Planting takes place through the City in following ward order: 5, 20 (partial),19,1,2, 11, 13, 12, 14, 15, 7, 8, 9, 23, 4, 5, 6, 3, 22W, 16, 17, 18, 10, 22E, 20.
In advance of tree planting, some site preparation work will be done including spot spraying and cutting of buckthorn. Buckthorn spraying will commend on Tuesday, September 27th and contractors have been requested to post chemical information on the Monday prior to spraying, although not required to do so.
