Annual tree maintenance begins in College Park, Holliston, Wildwood, and King George neighbourhoods

For immediate release: January 3, 2019 - 9:52am
CY19-103

Starting today, crews will begin pruning trees on civic property in the neighbourhoods of College Park, Holliston, Wildwood, and King George as part of the City’s Boulevard Tree Maintenance Program.

The Boulevard Tree Maintenance Program follows a regular pruning cycle to help preserve the health and appearance of the City’s boulevard and park tree inventory.  Maintenance crews will remove any broken, dead, weak, and diseased branches, as well as remove any tree parts that are obstructing pedestrian or vehicle traffic and ensure appropriate clearances for buildings, signs, street lights, and utility wires in order to keep sidewalks and roads free of hazards.  Tree maintenance operations in these four neighbourhoods will continue until March 31, 2019.

Tree maintenance often requires road restrictions.  The City reminds pedestrians, cyclists, and drivers to ensure that safety is a priority by respecting the work zone appropriately and obeying all road restrictions and signage.
